Chocolate Carrot Bundt Cake

So technically, this Chocolate Carrot Bundt Cake is a quickbread; however, I was being lazy and decided to pour all of the batter into one pan. I also had a TON of carrots to use up. I usually never have a lot of carrots on hand, but I forgot I had already purchased a bag when I was food shopping then bought another one. I used the base recipe for my Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread and this really came out well. The kids liked it, but said they would have preferred it better if I added some mini chocolate chips to it. Maybe I will next time and make muffins out of these instead!

  1. Carrie,
    My kids and I would love to eat this! When I think I'm not going to deal with the farm share carrots in a timely manner I finely shred and freeze them, so I have some on standby for winter. What a terrific idea. Thanks!

    1. Glad you like the recipe Kirsten and what a great use for all of those extra shredded carrots~Enjoy!
