Coconut Carrot Bread Recipe


easter breakfast bread


The aroma at our home was wonderful as Chef Dolores made a loaf of Coconut Carrot Bread. 


Coconut Carrot Bread
Loaded with coconut, shredded carrots and golden raisins and glazed with a cream cheese icing, a slice of this coconut carrot bread is like having carrot cake for breakfast!
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup golden raisens
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of a 9 x 5" loaf pan with waxed paper and spray with non-stick baking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the carrots, eggs, oil, yogurt, coconut, raisins and vanilla. Stir until combined.
  •  In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and nutmeg. 
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined. 
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and bake at 350 for 58-62 minutes. Test by inserting a toothpick into the center of the bread. When the toothpick comes out crumb-free, the bread is done.
  • Let the bread cool for 5 minutes in the pan, run a knife along the edges and remove from the pan. Remove the waxed paper, and let cool on a cooling rack. 
  • Stir together the powdered sugar, cream cheese and milk to create a glaze. Drizzle over the top of the warm bread. Slice and serve.

That looks so delicious and I would love to have a slice of it.  I don't think I would make it myself since there are too many ingredients in it that I am trying to stay away from, haha.
