Homemade Carrot Bread


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.
  3. In a separate large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugars together until creamy. Then, add the oil, milk, and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  4. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until just combined.
  5. Fold in the grated carrots and pecans (if using).
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  7. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Slice and serve the bread warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
