Carrot Cupcakes

I love love love carrot cake! Kaya nung nag ka oven at nakapag bake ako, isa sa mga una kong hinanap na recipe is for carrot cupcakes. I have adopted a recipe from Barefoot contessa and twiked it a little.



2 cups refined sugar
1 1/3 cups vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon iodized salt
3 pcs grated medium sized carrots
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven at 200 degrees celcius

Beat sugar,oil and vanilla together in a bowl . Add the eggs, one at a time. In another bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together. Add the grated carrots, raisins and walnuts to the mixture. Mix until just combined


Line muffin pans with paper liners. Scoop the batter into 18 muffin cups until each is 3/4 cup full. Bake at 200 degrees C for 10 minutes and reduce oven temperature to 180 degrees C and cook for another 10 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a rack when done.


My mom and officemates absolutely love this. I even add 1/2 cup rolled oats in one of my batches to make it healthier and more filling! Masarap din daw according sa mga naka kain, hehe.
