Carrot Walnut Bread

The Culinistas & Lodge Cast Iron | November 16, 2018

For a twist on traditional banana walnut bread, this autumnal quick bread uses both orange and purple carrots for a little extra flair. Only have orange carrots on hand? No need to worry, it'll still be delicious! Add a pinch of allspice or ginger for an extra kick.
