Last year I hosted one of many mom/daughter playdates. The mom brought Carrot Cupcakes. Without a doubt these were the best carrot cupcakes I had ever tasted. So I asked for and received the recipe. Finally I am making these delectable cupcakes (but with some changes)!
I do not do well with vegetable oils in muffins, and baking. I can taste it in the food, and sometimes it just doesn’t agree with me. I started using canola oil & apple sauce to replace veggie oil, and everything tastes better.
These cupcakes are so moist, and flavourful you will be surprised to learn they are made using store bought pureed baby carrot food. I’ve never bought carrot baby food, and so this was a first. I can’t say exactly what it is that makes this cupcake taste so darn good, but if it’s the baby food then I’m sold. These cupcakes are not too sweet, and melt in your mouth. In fact I have to hide them from my husband as he loves them.
Cupcakes are frosted with a Cream Cheese Frosting.
