Here is the recipe for these insanely good carrot cake cupcakes, just in case you want to make a batch for yourself.
What you need,
4 eggs1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup jarred baby food carrot puree (this is the secret ingredient!)
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. all spice
3 cups lightly packed grated raw carrots
½ cup raisins (optional)
½ cup chopped nuts (optional)
I like mine without the raisins and nuts but you go for it if wanna!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper cups (I got 20 cupcakes)
In a large bowl of an electric mixer. Beat eggs until frothy. Add in white and brown sugars gradually, beating until light and fluffy. Beat in oil and carrot puree. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice. Slowly add flour mixture into wet beat until just mixed.
Stir in the carrots. Add in the raisins/nuts if you are using.
Scoop batter by the large ice cream scoopful into prepared muffin cups, about ¾ ways full. Bake for 18-22 minutes until golden brown and a tester comes out clean. Cool on a rack.
Once the cupcakes are completely cool you can slather them in cream cheese icing! These are the best carrot cupcakes ever! So super moist and flavourful!
Cream Cheese Icing,
1- 8 oz pkg. cream cheese, softened¼ cup butter
½ tsp vanilla
1 ½ cups icing sugar
Beat butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla and icing sugar and beat until smooth.
