    Love the quote and I’m totally digging this whole wheat carrot bread. Afternoon snack time would be the perfect time to enjoy some of it.ReplyCancel

    This bread looks fabulous, Brian. I always make banana bread, but don’t think to make carrot bread. I am going to give it a try this weekend! I am imagining how great it would be with cream cheese sweetened with just a touch of honey!ReplyCancel

    My 15 month old would LOVE this for breakfast! I’m trying to come up with new ideas that he can feed himself without a fork. This fits the bill. :)ReplyCancel

    This looks so. freaking. delicious. I’d like a whole loaf to eat for breakfast right about now.ReplyCancel

    i love the quote! I’ve been needing a new loaf recipe, this looks so great. Hugh requests chocolate chips in it, regardless of the flavors, so this will work perfectly. xoReplyCancel

    Hmmm. Thanks for alerting me to the new album. I didn’t know they put one out. I wonder how it fares after Up From Below. As for the bread–chocolate chips and raisins? Interesting.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful quote. This whole wheat carrot bread sounds fantastic as well. Yum.ReplyCancel

  • MikeVFMKJanuary 3, 2013 - 3:56 pm

    Yes! I don’t know why I never think to make carrot bread. Carrot cake always comes to mind but this bread just may change that. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. The missus will love this.ReplyCancel

  • KristenJanuary 3, 2013 - 8:36 pm

    What a delicious sounding bread – so creative!ReplyCancel

  • Katie | GoodLife EatsJanuary 3, 2013 - 8:38 pm

    My kids would gobble this up without even a second thought that it is good for them or has carrots in it. Definitely adding it to this year’s baking list. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    MMnnn. . . I LOVES me some Carrots, especially when they’re whole and wheaty!

    ¬°Zanahorias son fantasticos!ReplyCancel

  • GraceJanuary 3, 2013 - 10:55 pm

    This looks lovely! Love the combination of raisins and chocolate chips in a carrot bread. That quote is my absolute favorite part of the whole “Here” album. I sing and clap along to that part of the song whether I’m in my office, at home alone or out running. No shame. I will have to see how this comes out gluten free.ReplyCancel

  • ElizabethJanuary 4, 2013 - 12:53 am

    I just printed it off..11:51 pm. Do I start it now or go to bed and get up at 6a to make.
    Co-worker has birthday tomorrow and wanted to take her a home baked item and have been going form recipe to recipe, not really settling on one. Like I said, getting a little late her. I could actually quick prep the ingredients and then just mix and bake tomorrow.ReplyCancel

    Mmmm, that looks rustic…and I mean that in a good way. I love breads that are dark and heavy and dense like that.ReplyCancel

  • Diane Foster SchmidtJanuary 4, 2013 - 7:10 am

    I can’t wait to make this and if it wasn’t 11 pm I think I’d be in the kitchen checking to see if I have all the ingredients, crossing fingers I do for morning :)ReplyCancel

  • Sommer@ASpicyPerspectiveJanuary 4, 2013 - 9:30 am

    Brian…. that looks delightful. And such a great edible gift!ReplyCancel

  • Monique @ Ambitious KitchenJanuary 4, 2013 - 10:50 am

    That’s gorgeous!ReplyCancel

  • AnonymousJanuary 4, 2013 - 3:40 pm

    Made it first thing this morning and it is absolutely fabulous! (I had to substitute brown sugar but the sifting made it all work perfectly).ReplyCancel

  • Sylvie @ Gourmande in the KitchenJanuary 4, 2013 - 5:17 pm

    My husband’s favorite is carrot bread, I need to make this for him!ReplyCancel

  • JoanneJanuary 5, 2013 - 6:45 am

    Could you pick any more perfect song to go with this lovely bread? Methinks not. Between the recipe and the lyrics, I feel like I’ve been encased in a warm hug.ReplyCancel

  • amelia from z tasty lifeJanuary 22, 2013 - 9:32 am

    love the poem, the photos, the whole wheat addition. Just great.ReplyCancel

  • Amy NicolsonJanuary 29, 2013 - 11:53 pm

    think I could substitute butter fot the oil?ReplyCancel

  • BayFebruary 5, 2013 - 9:56 pm

    Your pictures made me need it now! I am watching calories so I substituted applesauce for oil, 4 egg whites for the eggs, Splenda for the sugar and omitted the chocolate chips. Still turned out great with plenty of sweetness, although not as delicious as yours, I’m sure! Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • […] spark a thought or even create a portrait in the mind. Last week I got inspired by Brian to make carrot raisin bread while listening to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. See, I’ve got a real special place […]ReplyCancel

  • Sarah O.January 22, 2014 - 5:56 pm

    This bread looks bangin’. I don’t know where this blog has been all my life!ReplyCancel

  • Tammy Van Etten JonesJanuary 29, 2013 - 11:57 pm
