This recipe is excellent. I did make these changes to suit my tastes:
Sub'd 1C White Flour & 1C Almond Flour
Sub'd Brown Sugar for white
Sub'd Buttermilk for OJ
Sub'd Butter for Marg.
Added vanilla, 3/4 tsp Allspice, <1/2 tsp Ground Clove
Sprinkled Brown Sugar mixed w/ cinnamon on top before baking.
Next time I will cut back on the butter by 1/4 C.
Excellent recipe. I switched butter for the margarine as I refuse to use chemicals in my cooking. Not to mention butter tastes much better! ;) Used fine grate for carrots and the resulting cupcakes were dense and moist. I sprinkled a little sugar on top before baling to give them a crunchy sheen. Everyone loved them. Will definitely make again!
Best carrot muffins ever! You can never tell it's whole wheat!<br/><br/>I turned some of them into cupcakes by adding a cinammon frosting - it just worked amazingly well!<br/><br/>- Cinammon frosting:<br/>250 gr. cream cheese<br/>5 tbs softened butter<br/>300 gr icing sugar<br/>1 tsp cinammon
Very moist. Not too sweet. Made as is, but used butter. My son wants me to put chocolate chips in next time.
Yummy! I used only reg flour because that's all I had. Also melted butter instead of marg and used 3/4 sugar after reading some reviews. Turned out perfect!
Great, tasty muffins. I used oil for the margarine and the muffins were so tender and light. I also used a generous 1/2 cup of sugar (because of others saying it wasn't sweet enough) and added some raisins. So easy and quick to make. I'll definitely be making this one again!
These muffins are delicious!! I used brown sugar and added 1/4 a cup of chopped raisins (used a food processor). I also topped them with a mixture of powder sugar and milk. They turn out really great!!
These muffins are pretty good, but I like them a bit sweeter, so next time I'll likely add a bit more - but they're healthier for the kids as is.
Fresh squeezed orange juice whatever pulp I could get instead of regular OJ
1/2 butter & 1/2 vegetable oil instead of margarine
added about 1/2 cup of raisins (recipe was doubled)
forgot to add the vanilla that someone else recommended, next time...
Delicious. I used canola oil and brown sugar as a previous rater suggested, and added 1/2 cup each of raisins and chopped walnuts. Will definitely make these again.
We baked these for an early morning birdwatching stint and everyone loved them. Here's what I did differently: 1/2 cup canola oil vs. margarine; 1/2 cup raisins; and 1/2 cup brown sugar vs. white. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla extract and an extra dash of cinnamon.
