Maple Carrot Cupcakes
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Mine turned out perfect !! I would like to substitute blueberries for the carrot next time
Very delicious and moist, great without the frosting. I used olive oil and almost a whole one pound bag of peeled mini carrots.
I read the comments on these cupcakes...I noticed there isn't any "powdered sugar" in the frosting recipe. Has this ingredient been left out inadvertenly; or there isn't any in the recipe? I think it would be better with myself. I plan to make these as they sound very good even without any icing. Charlene 9/8/19
I followed the recipe exactly as written for the cupcakes & they turned out wonderful! I used my own cream cheese recipe for the frosting, adding some maple syrup to it.
I made these last night. They turned out great. More of a muffin though, I thought. I didn't put the cream cheese on top but have no doubt it would be delicious. My family just doesn't care for cream cheese.Someone asked about making only half the recipe. I did this a few weeks ago and it was just fine.Also, regarding maple syrup- use the real thing. It's the best but I'm biased since my family produces maple syrup and we have lots of it to use!!!!
Yummy!!!This is an amazing recipe, but instead of making muffins I turn it into a slab cake! I also add icing sugar to icing which makes it very creamy and everyone loves it!
Did other reviewers use real maple syrup, or just the regular pancake type syrup? (ie Aunt Jemima or Mrs Butterworths)
These were fantastic. The maple flavor really came through and made the finished product unique. I had no issues with the rising or otherwise.
teryn69 we have made these for years, and years, and never once had a problem with them rising. Maybe you can check your baking powder, sometimes if it's old, it does not work as well!!! Hope you give them another try...they truly do come out great for us each time! =)
Super moist and good. I love the taste of the maple syrup as the sweetener in both the cake and frosting. The frosting is not at all too sweet as many frostings are. Plenty of batter, and I got 24 nicely rounded cupcakes from it. This is now a favorite cupcake at our house!
