    A friend gave us a bakery bread that was called Roasted Pineapple & Carrot Bread. My husband loved it so much he searched the web to find this recipe. We have been making it on a regular basis for years now. The whole family loves the flavor.We like the idea of multi-grain, so we use one cup white, one cup wheat and one cup of oat flour. We also use a cup of brown sugar and a cup of white.

    Oh yum, may give up carrot cake altogether and just make this from now on. Very good.

    I had some leftover carrots and crushed pineapple from a carrot cake I had made last week so decided to use them up making this bread. YUMMY!! It does taste like carrot cake minus the icing (and calories from the icing). I halved the recipe to make one loaf and omitted the nuts but did add 1/4 cup raisins instead. A delicious bread to snack on anytime of day!
