I love making dessert breads because they are so easy to make and seem to be a no fail recipe. Banana bread and lemon poppy seed bread are a few of my favorites. But then we met carrot bread. The carrots combined with the perfect spices and topped with cream cheese couldn’t be any better! My husband has always loved carrot cake, but this is just as good but less fuss.
