Carrot Orange Loaf

For dessert, Marian prepared a Carrot Orange Loaf for the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors.


The Carrot Orange Loaf is moist and perfumed with orange and cinnamon. A great ending for a meal. They are great for breakfast or snack and made a great lunch box treat.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup finely shredded carrot
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
