    Excellent little recipe!! I made with all the ingredients stated but did adjust amounts slightly. I added a little more carrot, ginger and cinnamon to the recipe, just my preference not because there was any thing wrong with recipe amounts listed. I also had to change the cream cheese frosting a bit as we can not get cool whip here, I just used double cream and confectioners sugar mixed with the cream cheese. I had to fight my hubby and son off of these last night, as I wanted to take them to a family gathering today and if I had let them go I would have had none left.. Everyone said how light they were and not overly sweet which we love. This is such a quick recipe to throw together and they taste wonderful with or without the frosting.. Although I love them with but then I love cream cheese frosting.. Cheers CoffeB for a great cupcake recipe that will be enjoyed often in our house. :)
