I cannot believe that Easter is coming up this weekend. The spring is starting to go so fast. My son has already participated in a few Easter egg hunts and he understands it much better than he did last year. He loves finding the eggs and opening them to see what is inside. Something else that we do to celebrate Easter is that I usually make a nice brunch on Easter morning.
For some reason when I think of Easter, I think of carrot cake. I think it is because bunnies eat carrots. Plus, I think carrot cake is a great food for Easter. I decided to combine carrot cake in with one of my favorite breakfast foods, banana bread. This would make a great breakfast or snack for Easter and it can be made the night before so you do not have to worry about it on Easter day. I got the idea for this delicious bread from Real Mom Kitchen who used Butter Pecan cake mix to make a banana bread.
This Carrot Cake Banana Bread tasted fantastic and was incredibly moist. I really liked the combination of the carrot cake flavor with the banana flavor. This bread is also easy to make because it uses a box carrot cake mix. You definitely need to try this great combination of carrot cake and banana bread. We plan on making it again to have on Easter morning. I hope you enjoy this moist and delicious bread!
