Let's Make It
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Butter and flour a 9x5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, yogurt and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Then, beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Stir in the carrots.
Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to the wet ingredients and stir everything together so that it is smooth with no lumps. Then, pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and level the top with a spatula.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the top springs back when touched and a cake tester comes out clean. Allow the loaf to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Then, turn it out onto a wire rack and allow it to cool completely.
Once it has cooled, beat together the Neufchatel cheese, powdered sugar, and milk until a thick glaze forms. If it needs to be thinner, add more milk by the teaspoon. Drizzle the glaze over the loaf as desired. Slice and serve.
Since this indulgent carrot bread makes 16 servings, it is the perfect dessert to serve at your next party.
