Step 1

In medium saucepan, combine butter, cream, honey and 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil 1 minute. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the walnuts. Cool to room temperature (about 20 minutes). Meanwhile, heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 (9x5-inch) loaf pans with foil; generously grease foil.

Step 2

In food processor, combine remaining 1/2 cup nuts and 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and all remaining ingredients except carrots. Process until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour into large bowl; stir in carrots. Place 1 cup batter in each pan. Top each with 1/2 cup walnut mixture. Repeat layers. Top each with half of remaining batter.

Step 3

Bake 1 hour 10 minutes or until center is dry to the touch and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 15 minutes. Remove from pans; remove foil. Cool completely on wire racks. Wrap loaves tightly; refrigerate overnight before slicing.
