Carrot-Banana Bread is one of the Heart of the BottomsUp 2/3 Acres favorites and made often. We thought we’d share this with you. This recipe was shared with us, by our dear friend, Mrs. Ann Van Etten.

  1. I’ll have to try this during this weekend. Wonder if adding a little applesauce would make it extra moist and gooey? I’ll cook this original recipe first! 🙂
