What a flavor combination--hearty Carrot Cupcakes with a thick coat of our rich Cream Cheese Icing. One of the most satisfying desserts around!
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup vegetable oil
4 cups (approx. 1 lb) carrots freshly shredded
2/3 cup nuts chopped
About 2 1/2 dozen standard cupcakes or 8 Mini Tasty-Fill cakes. Each cupcake serves 1.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line standard muffin pan with baking cups. In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and baking soda; mix well.
In large bowl, beat eggs with electric mixer until foamy; add oil in a thin stream and beat well. Add flour mixture to egg mixture; mix well. Fold in carrots and nuts. Spoon into baking cups.
Bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pan on cooling rack for 5-8 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan; cool completely.
Do not use pre-shredded carrots.
Any of our cupcake recipes may be prepared in our Mini Tasty-Fill pans. Spray pans with vegetable pan spray, then fill each with about 1/2 cup batter. Place pans on cookie sheet and bake 14-16 minutes. Cool in pan on cooling grid for about 8 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely before filling and icing.
