Sometime last week, i was in the mood to bake something different. So i looked around the house for some inspiration, and happened to find a bunch of carrots in our vegetable bin. And i thought to myself, 'hmmm...what can i do with these???' Then i logged on to the internet to look for recipes and found one for carrot muffins that looked easy and still promised to be yummy. What they forgot to mention was how awesomazingly yummy it would be!!!
You will need
1 cup of raisins
2 cups of warm water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
2-3 cups grated carrots
What to do
1. Soak raisins in the warm water for about 15 minutes. Discard water afterwards and set aside.
2. Preheat oven to about 180 degrees Celsius, and line cupcake pan with the paper cases.
3. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. In a separate bowl combine eggs and brown sugar and mix properly. Then, combine egg mixture and flour mixture and mix. Fold in carrots and drained raisins.
Note: If you are like me and would always pick out raisins in cakes and throw away, u can decide to omit the raisins...or just add em and pick out like i did! lol. If you want to take them out, you may substitute with chocolate chunks/chips. I personally have not tried that, but i think it could work.
