Carrot Cake Cupckaes.... Ummmmmmm

So since we got married two weeks ago... We've been baking.... Last week it was yellow butter cake with milk chocolate frosting, with Strawberries, this week Carrot Cake Cupcakes, next week who knows? So during half time of the Patriots game tonight I made the cupcakes, and boy were they good. Soft fluffy and still warm when we frosted a few.. They served carrot cake squares at our wedding, at a Vienesse Table that was absolutely scrumptious... I would love to try and make one thing from that table each week, there was about 14 things , know that sounds like heaven to me!!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4-1/2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil ( or applesauce if you don't want use oil)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups grated carrot

And of course Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the bottoms only of 12 muffin cups, or line with baking cups. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar until frothy and lightened in color. Stir in the oil , vanilla extract, and grated carrot; fold in the flour mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tins.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove to cool on wire racks.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the icing by beating together the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar until fluffy. Frost the cooled muffins and chill until ready to serve.
