Carrot Muffins With Raisins and Dried Pineapple

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Dragoness

Now you can have carrot cake in a muffin! To make these even more like carrot cake, use your favourite cream cheese icing to take them over the top! You can even make them into tropical carrot cake muffins with a few substitutions. This recipe is adapted from "Scones, Muffins and Tea Cakes".

These muffins turned out very nice! I was looking forward to using my dried pineapple, but unfortunately, I had left it too long. I used the same amount of dried apple instead. I suppose any kind of dried fruit would be possible. I used the cinnamon, just to match the apples. I grated the carrot in my food processor, and nothing could have been simpler. Now I'm wondering if maybe maple syrup would work as well as honey. Thank you very much for posting this fine recipe which I'm sure I'll be using a lot.
