Carrot Cake

I love carrot cake! It reminds me of home for some reason. I also love them because they aren’t as sweet as normal cupcakes or cakes in general. Here is a simple recipe that I made my own for these carrot cake cupcakes. You can also just make this into a cake as well. These are great to bring to a brunch instead of cupcakes because there almost like a muffin but BETTER!

You can also just make this into a regular cake as well!

Here’s what you’ll need
2-cups of sugar
2- cups of flour
4- eggs
3/4- cup of oil
1/2- cup of applesauce instead of another 3/4 oil…. he he this way its better for you!
2- tsp of baking soda
1- tbs of cinnamon
1- tsp of salt
3- cups of grated carrots
1/2-1 cup cup of walnuts

Frosting
12 oz- powdered sugar
6 oz- cream cheese room temp
1 tsps- Vanilla extract
2 tbs- butter
2 tbs- milk

First thing you will do is grade your carrots

Then in the mixer add the flour, soda, cinnamon, salt.

Then add applesauce, sugar and oil and add the four eggs.

Fold in the carrots and nuts with a spoon

Place batter into cupcake holders or 9 x 13 cake pan. Bake for 35-40 mins for cupcakes or 45 for cake in the oven at 350 degrees

While these cook make your frosting and let it cool in the fridge. Beat together powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla, butter, and milk

Spread on cooled carrot cake!
