Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Carrot Cake Cupcakes created by Mimi in Maine

These are just like a piece of Carrot Cake. Delicious. Pop them in the freezer and you will always have a quick dessert when you need it. My youngest granddaughter likes to have me make cupcakes. She thinks they are just for her. I like to use Marg (Cayman Designs) Recipe #261024 on these and if you want it a traditional Carrot Cake Frosting, throw in some cream cheese to her frosting. Good!

ingredients

directions

  • In a mixing bowl beat the oil and sugar; add the eggs, one at a time mixing well.
  • Add the next 5 ingredients and mix well.
  • Grate the carrots (I do it in a food processor) and add to the above.
  • Add walnuts and coconut.
  • Use cupcake papers that have been lightly sprayed with vegetable spray and fill two-thirds full.
  • Bake 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and frost when cool.
  • I like a butter frosting but a cream cheese frosting is great too.

    Pretty good recipe, although I made a couple of small changes. I thought 1 1/2 of oil seemed like too much. I only used 1 1/3 C of sunflower oil, as I don't ever cook or bake with vegetable oil. I also felt like it called for too much salt, so I only used a little less than 1 tsp. I have yet to frost these, but I gave one a taste and they're quite good. Not sure how they would've differed with more oil and salt

    What a great recipe. It is so moist and full of flavor!! I was looking for a recipe to use up a large batch of carrots and this was better than I expected. They DO freeze nicely and once thawed maintain their moist flavor!! This is a keeper, think I will go make more now! OH, they are SO good they do NOT need the icing, great for a quick breakfast on the run, without it.
