Delicious Homemade Carrot Pecan Bread Recipe

I love this carrot bread recipe that I got several years ago from my great aunt and I think you will love it too! It will make 1 full-size loaf of bread and will keep for 3-4 days once baked.

Homemade Carrot Pecan Bread Recipe

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans
2 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups finely chopped or grated carrots

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease your loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl combine together the flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon and salt, stir in the finely chopped pecans, set aside. Place eggs, granulated sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla extract into a blender container and process until ingredients are combined (or place them in a bowl and use a hand mixer). Add the finely chopped carrots to the wet ingredients and combine until well mixed together. Slowly blend the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until everything is well mixed together. Pour your bread batter into your prepared loaf pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45-55 minutes or until done. Cool before serving.
