Reviews forPineapple Carrot Bread
"Wonderful bread, great tasting, however, it has too much sugar."
"My husband gave me a wierd look when I told him what I was making but he ended up loving it! I substitute pureed white beans (with a little water to make the same consistancy as oil) for oil in all of my quick breads, you can't taste the difference but the texture is lighter and less greasy. I know it sounds wierd but once you try it you'll never go back to oil."
