Carrot Muffins Recipe

When I need a great accompaniment for soup, stew or a casserole, I reach for this recipe. The carrot gives the muffins a nice texture.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 medium carrot, sliced

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a blender or food processor, combine remaining ingredients; cover and process until carrots are finely chopped. Pour carrot mixture over dry ingredients; stir just until combined.
  • 2. Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 425° for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 6 muffins.
