Spicy Chai Banana Carrot Quick Bread

My day started off to the sight of a bunch of ripe bananas, spotted with brown. “Brilliant,” I thought. “I can make banana bread.” I finally decided on chai banana bread, perfect for spicy autumn. Little did I know that when I came back to bake later, the bananas had slowly been eaten by my thieving family. Being the impatient person I am, I hurtled straight into the recipe anyway and – guess what – found I did not have enough bananas! I didn’t want to add more oil, and considering that it was autumn and the bread was spicy, I decided the best thing to do was sub in grated carrot and it turned out delicious.
