"a very nice recipe- not too sweet, just right. It went together very quickly- next time I may add more cinnamon or a bit of ginger just because I like the spices"

"I LIKE THAT IT HAS CARROTS IN IT! ANYWHERE YOU CAN ADD EXTRA VEGGIES IS A PLUS. YOU CAN'T REALLY TASTE THE CARROTS, BUT I LIKED IT BETTER THAN REGULAR OLD BANANA BREAD! I USED WALNUTS BECAUSE THATS WHAT I HAD. I WILL MAKE THIS RECIPE AGAIN!"
