Pineapple Carrot Bread Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 65 min. + cooling YIELD:32 servings


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, optional
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons milk, optional


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, beat eggs; add carrots, oil, pineapple and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in nuts.

"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."
