This recipe is great. It makes a very light (not compact) carrot bread/cake and is so simple to make!! I substituted light muscovado sugar for the brown sugar and cake was darker than usual but just as yummy.

Great bread! I received some carrots from someone's garden, and I used them in this recipe. I doubled the recipe, using 1/2 c. oil and 1 c. applesauce (instead of 2 c. oil). I also used 5 eggs for the doubled recipe. I baked the bread in two 9x5 loaf pans at 350 degrees, and it was done in 50 minutes. I had only generously sprayed the pans with PAM, but next time I would line the bottoms with parchment paper, because the bottoms of both loaves stuck when I turned them out of the pans. This is the same recipe that I had found on the Mimi's Cafe website, and the taste is really close to theirs, I think. I wrapped one loaf up for the carrot-giver, and I hope she enjoys it as much as we do. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Very moist and delicious. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/4 cup. Reduced oil to 3/4 cup . Keeper.

Fantastic Recipe! Really does taste like Mimi's bread. I made the recipe exactly as stated (excepting of course increasing the yield to serve 100, for work) and it was wonderful. I too had troubles getting it out of my loaf pans, I think I will try the paper idea as well next time. Everyone loves this so there will be a next time. The larger your pan the longer it should cook. My loaf pans are about 3x14 and I let them cook for about an hour, but could've used another 10 minutes even. Thanks!
