    Apple & Carrot Bread

    There are many Apple Bread recipes but I would call them Apple Cake. All use too much Sugar. I first made this ‘Apple Bread’ by adding 1 Apple to my ‘Carrot Bread’, and the batter ended up too runny. I realised that Milk shouldn’t be added because enough liquid would come out from Carrot and …
