Buckwheat Carrot Loaf

Buckwheat Carrot Loaf

This Carrot loaf has become a standard in our home, these days. It is so packed with wholesome goodness and it presents a great way for me to use up the carrot pulp from my carrot juice. This loaf so reminds me of my Grandmother’s carrot bread, that I enjoyed as a child; full of Caribbean flavours, the coconut, dried mangoes and nuts. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!
