Pineapple Carrot Bread Recipe
My home is located in the Delaware Valley of Pennsylvania. This bread has the wonderful flavor of carrot cake, which is dearly loved in this part of the country. Because it's made with carrots, this bread is nutritious as well as economical-two important qualities in my home.
