Perfect for breakfast or a snack, this Moist Apple Carrot Bread Recipe is sweet and delicious. After it has cooled try adding whipped cream cheese for extra deliciousness.
Quick breads are a long time favorite of mine. Easy to prepare and when using a silicone baking pan, I have found success in never having burned a loaf. This Moist Apple Carrot Bread certainly lives up to the name – it is super moist and delicious!
Since this is such a moist style of quick bread, you will want to use a toothpick to check that it completely cooked through in the middle. A few crumbs on the toothpick are expected, but no raw batter should be present. Drape foil over the top of the bread if it starts to get overly browned on top as it bakes.

- 9″x5″ Loaf Pan
- 1 large egg

- Add the carrots, apples, and fold gently to combine. Turn batter out into the prepared pan.
- Bake for about 45 to 55 minutes or until the top is golden, the center is set, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. At the half way mark you can drape foil over the top if it is becoming too browned.
- Allow bread to cool in pan for about 15 minutes before turning out on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving.
