Sweet Potato Carrot Cake Quick Bread



If you love carrot cake, you'll love this bread with a little added nutritional boost!


Lately I've been finding that it is nice to have some sort of muffin, quick bread, pancake or the like on hand for the baby {who turns 1 in less than a month!}.

Bits and pieces of these breads keep her entertained and happy when I first put her in the highchair close to meal time.  I'm usually running around tending to the meal, getting the other kids settled, dishing out plates, drinks and ignoring the chaos around me.

Any type of muffin or bread will keep her happy until the "real" food comes out.  This bread was no different.  She inhaled it, jabbering for more.  So after she ate a whole piece, I didn't feel too bad as it is chalk full of sweet potatoes, carrots, healthy oil and limited sugar.

And did I mention we all loved it too?  It lasted two days in our house, this little loaf of ours...it didn't have a chance.


Speaking of breads.  Are you following my "Breads" board on Pinterest?  For the love of all things carb, I have it saved on this page!  Muffins, sandwich bread, monkey bread, dinner rolls, doughs and dessert breads.

Don't be ashamed.

I know you like bread just as much as I do.

And if you don't, well then, I know you are lying.

If you have leftover cooked sweet potato set it aside for this bread.  Or you can be like me and just nuke a small one in the microwave specifically for this bread.

Yes, I know I should eat it plain {without butter, without sugar, without cinnamon....you know everything that makes it good}, but my mind doesn't work like that.

I wanted bread.
