The theme for this month's Home Baker's Challenge was quick breads. Quick breads are breads that do not use yeast and are leavened with other leavening agents like baking powder and baking soda. Unlike yeast breads, quick breads do not require kneading or rising and they rise when baked. This month's host Priya suggested few interesting quick bread recipes, from which I tried the carrot zucchini bread.
This is the first time I'm trying a quick bread with veggies and I'm glad I did. The carrot zucchini bread turned out soft and moist. It tasted more between a bread and a cake with a light hint of spices and the right amount of sweetness. This quick bread is ideal to serve with your evening tea or coffee. Let's see how to make this delicious quick bread with carrot and zucchini.
Notes and Tips
- It is important to remove any excess moisture from carrot and zucchini after grating. Otherwise the bread will turn out too moist.
- Do not over-mix the batter, otherwise the bread will out tough.
- You can also add chopped nuts like walnuts or pecans.
