Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or coat with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together pastry four, all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, brown sugar, and eggs. Whisk in the applesauce and vanilla extract. Stir in the grated carrots.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the carrot mixture and stir just until incorporated.
  5. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a cupcake comes out clean. Allow cupcakes to cook in the tin for five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Make frosting by using an electric mixer to beat cream cheese, maple syrup, and maple extract until smooth. Once cupcakes are cooled completely, frost!
