Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pans with paper liners (I double the liners up).
  2. In one bowl, beat eggs then mix in orange juice, orange zest, maple syrup, and apple sauce. Set aside.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Add the egg mixture until well combined, but don't over mix.
  4. Fold in zucchini, carrots, raisins and chopped nuts.
  5. Fill cupcakes about 2/3 and bake for 21-22 minutes Do the toothpick test to make sure the middle is cooked through.
  6. Let cool slightly and transfer to cooling rack.
  7. FROSTING: beat cream and butter until smooth. Add maple syrup, vanilla and spice. Mix until well combined. Top completely cooled cupcakes with a generous heap.
  8. ENJOY!
