Carrot Cake Quick Bread

What can I say, it’s Sunday and I felt like baking some delicious bread for the chilly weekday mornings we have coming up. I also cannot just sit still for 5 seconds without cooking something. SEND HELP.

Carrot cake is one of those classic flavors with a variety of spices that lend themselves to the fall weather. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all-spice…need I say more? This bread would be absolutely delicious with a little melted butter or whipped cream cheese. If you weren’t a fan of carrots, well, I think you will be now.
