♥...Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing...♥

This would mark my blog's first post on cupcakes. I've actually tried and tested few cupcake recipes. Some were excellent, some were just okey. Sharing an extraordinary with you all today!



CARROT CUPCAKES with CREAM CHEESE ICING
source : Philadelphia

Ingredients :~
  • 200gm self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 225gm grated carrots
  • 200ml oil (sunflower or groundnut oil)
  • 100gm brown sugar (I used 100gm caster sugar + 100gm brown sugar)
  • 85gm chopped pecans ( skipped)
  • 50gm sultanas
  • 4 eggs ~ lightly beaten
For icing
  • 200gm cream cheese
  • 100gm icing sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon rind
  • 2 tbsp pecans, roughly chopped (to sprinkle) ~ skipped

Method :~

  1. Sift together flour and cinnamon powder into a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Mixture will be quite runny.
  2. Spoon mixture into prepared cupcake moulds. Bake at 180°C for 20-25 minutes. 
  3. Cool on wire rack once done.
  4. For Icing :~ Beat all ingredients except for pecans until smooth. Top the cuppies with icing and sprinkle pecans over.
*** The carrots I bought were not sweet enough, thus I added more sugar.


Delicious cuppies...especially when you have it chilled. Enjoy!
