This super quick and easy Carrot Coconut bread is loaded with carrots, coconut, and walnuts with a creamy glaze and topped with toasted coconut. Perfect for breakfast and when company calls!
If you love carrot cake, then this is the bread for you. No need to bake all the layers, make frosting, assemble it or decorate it. This quick bread has all those flavors in a loaf pan and has an easy cream cheese glaze. Make it, bake it and enjoy it all in about one hour.
This recipe will make one big loaf or three small ones - I opted for the three small ones since I planned on eating one myself - HA. Well, I really didn't do that but I sure could have. I actually wanted to keep one for us (sharing with the DIY Guy) and share the other two with friends. It's always nice to share, right? And none of my friends have ever turned down a treat I've given them. (And nor do I when I'm the recipient!)
It just seems like this time of year that carrots remind me of spring and Easter. In past years, I have made carrot cake muffins and even a carrot ginger soup (this one was a great hit for the bridal shower I hosted last year). Get your orange on! I topped one loaf with just toasted coconut and another with toasted coconut and walnuts - the third one is naked for now.
