  1. Do not over bake the bread. 10 minutes before the baking time is up check the bread for doneness.
  2. Use a wooden pick for doneness. If the wooden pick comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs attached to it, you know that it is done. 
  3. Do not worry if the top of the loaf is cracked. It is normal for quick breads tops to have cracks in them.
  4. Grease and flour the pans for easily removal.
  5. Store in an airtight container. 
  6. Carrot Quick Bread can be frozen for a later date.
