Carrot Cake Muffins

Rated as 4.16 out of 5 Stars

"These are a twist between a cinnamon roll and carrot cake cupcakes. You'll just have to roll your eyes and say 'Mmmmm' when you take your first bite! Another topping idea would be to sprinkle the muffins with a cinnamon-sugar mixture before baking. Top with a vanilla glaze."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Beat milk, eggs, applesauce, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in another bowl. Stir carrots into flour mixture; fold in milk mixture and butter until batter is just combined. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

These were ok but more like just a plain carrot muffin. Not really like a carrot cake. Needs raisins and walnuts. I'll try a different recipe next time.

An excellent recipe, easy and tasty. I doubled the carrot, and added raisins and nutmeg, and it actually made 22 muffins, not 12

With a few tweaks these muffins are delious. I replaced the butter with 1/2 cup oil. I also added raisins and walnuts and allspice and nutmeg. Yummy

Doubled the cinnamon added nutmeg and lots of raisins plus a topping of brown sugar and cinnamon super yummy!

I did change it a bit. Used 1/2 c oil instead of butter just like most other muffin recipes. I added 1c raisins and 1c walnuts. Was a big hit!!
