Carrot Nut Bread

Try to use ground or very finely chopped nuts in this recipe. I grind mine in a bullet blender, with pulses. They are not ground as fine as nut butter. It makes the flavor quite different from regular chopped nuts.

This bread tastes as good as (or better than) the carrot bread at Mimi's Café, but I do not know if it is the same recipe. This one originated from an old Joy of Cooking cookbook, and has been modified through the years to suit my tastes.
