Without hesitation, I can say this Gluten-Free Carrot Apple Loaf is among the finest breakfast loaves for those adhering to a gluten-free diet. Despite its simplicity, this breakfast loaf boasts exceptional moisture and an array of tasty flavors and textures, making every bite a memorable.

The three types of flour that make up this Carrot Apple Loaf are almond flour, sweet sorghum flour and arrowroot flour. We all know how nutritious almond flour is. But did you know that sorghum flour is high in fiber and an excellent source of antioxidants?

Sorghum flour is also a low gi food, which helps to balance out blood sugars. Because sorghum flour is another high protein flour, it keeps gluten-free bakes soft tender, similar to almond flour.

To keep the carrot apple loaf healthy-ish, I used heart-healthy olive oil, eggs, maple syrup and plenty of apples and carrots throughout. Starting your day with a slice of this delicious carrot apple loaf will keep your hunger at bay and provide you with lasting energy.

To add even more deliciousness, an aromatic Brown Butter Frosting sets this loaf apart from most. The frosting is optional, but it makes the Gluten-Free Carrot Apple Loaf insanely good! Another frosting I would recommend is the Royal Cream Cheese Frosting.

Have you baked bread, cake, muffins or a breakfast loaf, and it came out underbaked and deflated even though you followed the recipe exactly? This is because several factors will affect the length of baking time.

the temperature of ingredients

Eggs, butter and milk should always be at room temperature, with the exception of pie crust and pastry dough.

Moisture in fruit varies. Some apples or pears are juicier than others, which will affect the baking time.

the oven temperature

Not all oven temperatures are the same. To find out if your oven temperature is preheating to the right temperature, put it to the test. You will need an oven thermometer to do this.

air pressure

Baking at high altitudes, the air pressure is lower. When the air pressure is lower, it takes longer to bake. You may have to adjust temperature or bake times.

How to test for doneness?

The simplest way to check for doneness is, inserting a tester like a toothpick or a skewer in the center. If it comes out clean, the loaf is fully baked. If the batter clings to the tester, it needs more baking. Fully baked loaves, quick bread and muffins will feel resilient when the center is gently pressed with fingers.
