Carrot Bread for a Bread Machine

Although I have made carrot bread in the past, I have never used my bread machine, nor yeast to do so. It's a concept that is interesting, but yet seems strange to me since I think of carrot bread as a 'quick' bread. Surfing the internet one night a few months ago I came across this one and copied it down for future use. Time has gotten away from me and I've not managed to make it yet, although I will admit I've thrown together a few quick breads since I found this one. Maybe I'm putting it off for one reason or another due to the actual 'bread' like quality I'm sure it will have thanks to the machine and the yeast?

Either way, I'm afraid I'll lose it if I don't get it copied to my files, so here it is!
