  • Beat eggs and sugar until frothy and lightened in color. Stir in oil, vanilla extract, and grated carrot; fold in flour mixture. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove to cool on wire racks.

  • Meanwhile, prepare frosting by beating cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar together until fluffy. Frost the cooled muffins and chill until ready to serve.
