This delicious quick-bread version of moist, tender carrot cake was suggested by Milk Street Facebook Community member Michelle Downs Matlack. Pistachios and tahini lend the bread loads of nutty notes, and candied ginger and orange bring bright, bracing flavor. Serve slices for breakfast or as an afternoon pick-me-up alongside a cup of coffee or tea.

Lovely breakfast!
The recipe used a very different set of seasonings than what is normally used with carrot bread (cake?). It was very light, and almost refreshing. I’m very glad I tried it. Would make again.
