It has been a while I participated in Home Baker’s Challenge and even this month I would have missed the posting deadline if I hadn’t checked the FB updates. I remember seeing this month’s bakes announcement last month and then completely forgot about it during thew holiday season. Thankfully I remembered about the challenge right on time and made this moist and delicious Carrot-Zucchini bread yesterday.
My son does not like carrots and avoids them like plague. Interestingly, I was looking through my blog posts from few years back and I wrote in one of the posts that my son loved carrots and added them in just about everything. It’s all reversed now and he doesn’t want to get even close to carrots. So the easiest thing to do is disguise it in some way, so he’ll eat it.
This carrot and zucchini bread is a great way to hide veggies. I tweaked the original recipe a little bit in the quantity of grated carrot and zucchini used. I used equal quantities of both grated carrot and zucchini whereas the original recipe used more zucchini. I added a handful of golden raisins for good measure. The bread turned out quite moist and my picky eater seemed to like it too.
