Andy's Carrot Cake Cupcakes

    50 mins

    Noticing that I had quite a few carrots lying around, I decided to use it in a cupcake recipe instead of just roasting or turning them into soup and this is what I came up with!

    12 people made this

    Serves: 12 

    • 150g self raising flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 125g softened butter
    • 125g brown sugar
    • 75g grated carrot
    • 2 eggs
    • Icing
    • 100g cream cheese
    • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
    • 1 dash lemon flavouring or lemon rind

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Put 12 cupcake cases into a cake tin.
    3. Sieve the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large bowl.
    4. Add the butter, brown sugar, carrot and eggs. Beat together with a wooden spoon until well mixed.
    5. Divide the mixture between the cases and bake for 20-25 minutes until they spring back when pressed.
    6. Transfer cakes to a wire cake rack leave until cold.
    7. Icing: Mix the cream cheese with the icing sugar in a bowl then spread on the cakes. Put in the fridge for about 20 minutes to set the icing.

    Excellent recipe! Lovely, moist cupcakes. Ideal for little helpers to join in with. I used a little orange juice in the icing. But apart from that didn't change a thing. These will deffintiely become a regular in our house!  -  03 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
