I absolutely love carrot cake, it has such a fabulous texture. As it has a vegetable in it, I consider it a healthy cupcake 😉 yeah right!
This particular recipe used a heap of carrot – a whole 300g which I think is a bit too much, so I’ll be cutting this down next time as it was a little overkill on the cake’s texture. These lovely low-maintenance beauties warm you inside with that hint of cinnamon and perfect partner – orange. Sadly there was a presentation let down, peeling cases. I suspect this is down to moisture from the mass of carrots. Apart from that, they were certainly palette pleasers, and a hearty cupcake with cream cheese frosting topped with orange zest.
