Serves: 1 loaf
Ingredients
  • 2¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ cups shredded Asiago cheese
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 3 cups loosely packed shredded carrots (about 6 medium carrots)
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray and then dust with flour. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, cayenne, baking powder and baking soda. Stir in 1 cup Asiago cheese and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, eggs and sour cream until smooth. Stir in the carrots.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and then pour in the carrot mixture. Stir until just combined, and no flour remains. Do not over-mix or else your bread will be tough. The batter will be very thick. Transfer into the prepared loaf pan and smooth out into an even layer. In a small bowl, toss together the almonds with the remaining Asiago cheese. Then sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter. Bake until puffed up and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Transfer the loaf onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely before slicing and serving. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic for up to 3 days. Enjoy!
