This one's for you Mrs. L!

So since Friday Mrs. L has been on me to get up the recipe for my 'Carrot Cake Muffins'. We had a bakesale for our Mini Comapny to raise some airgead! And booy did we do well, around €160 we made! If you're not a huge food lover, I'm betting you're turning your nose up at the thought of Sweet cakes and Carrots! But you HAVE to try this. And the icing is just TO DIE FOR!
I did this recipe for my Junior Cert Home Ec. prcatical and I have now perfected it, so if you're a lover of carrot cake, let me know and I'll whip up a quick batch for you! :)

Carrot Cake Muffins


125g Wholemeal Flour
125g Plain Flower
175g Brown Sugar
4 Eggs
150g Sunflower Oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon Cinnamon/Mixed Spice (I always do a little of both!)
CARROTS! (Roughly 350g, but around 4 large carrots - the more the better!)
50g Hazlenuts/Walnuts (If you wish!)

Delicious Cream Cheese Icing

200g Cream Cheese
120g Icing sugar (do to taste also - I like to keep the icing more thick and not too sweet!)
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence (A MUST - it makes such a difference to the icing)

If any of you want to make these just let me know and I'll post the method - it's so simple! Almost like an all-in-one mixture, but not quite! Just comment below and let me know :)


Talk soon xo
