Trial & Error

Trial and error has finally led me to this blog-worthy carrot cake muffin recipe. I think it’s my slight obsession with things that remind me of fall, that made me add cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. It’s sort of a hybrid recipe.. a combination of pumpkin-spice scones and carrot cake.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg, freshly grated
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup orange juice (pref. freshly squeezed)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups shredded carrot

I could write up a fancy paragraph on the directions, but basically mix together the flour, baking soda, spices and salt. Then beat the eggs and sugar, and then add the butter, orange juice, and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture, add the shredded carrots, and pour into the muffin tray! 🙂 Bake for about 20 mins, and let em’ cool!

It was gone almost as quick as it was made!

I only got to eat 1 (I’ve got some hungry family members! 🙂 ) but this just means it was a success! yayy!! I’m actually thinking about making some for my group meeting on Saturday.. as part of my contribution to the assignment 😉

  1. Those look amazing! I’m gonna bookmark this! But…lol my list of things I want to make just keeps growing, I feel like I’ll never have a completed list…

    and I’ve never made anything like carrot cake or carrot muffins or anything, so this will be a first!
