Carrot, Banana, Apple Bread: And it's Oil Free

I consider myself more of a cook than a baker because I don't like pesky "measurements." This Banana, Carrot, Apple Bread is healthy and delish.


This photo is not awesome, but the cake totally is.

Guys- by the time you read this I will be on a plane. OMG. I’m freaking out a little, okay a lot, as I type and schedule this post.

Excited, yes, because I can’t wait to see my family and friends. Worried, absolutely, because Lavinia and I have been super sick for the last few days. Bummed, of course, because I’m going to miss my husband real bad.

So while I'm consuming airplane and fast food- do yourself a favor and make this delicious fruity goodness just because you can.

I consider myself more of a cook than a baker because I don't like pesky "measurements." I do have to say I'm quite proud because I totally made this recipe up and it rocks. Admittedly I did get some of the dry ingredient proportions from a few recipes I read online. If you want to get a little cray just add some frosting and viola- a healthy cake.

  1. Oh feel better soon, Dawn. It's terrible to be sick and travelling, and it's hard to travel with a kid. My American friend just left for Seattle with her 1 yr old yesterday. YIKES!
    BTW- just added you to the Blog's I Love page on my blog. AND this loaf looks sooooo yummy!

  2. We survived- barely! Being sick made it so much worse but we did it. Now I'm willing the memory to fade. Thanks for adding me to your faves! Back atcha 😉 Try the loaf- you'll get your cinnamon fix.
