Best Carrot Cake Mini Muffins: Moist & Fluffy

January 12, 2021

My #unbeatable mini muffin Carrot Cakes are so lovely in flavour you can’t only have one! Made for those who love a bite sized treat that will just make you want more! 

I have always loved a good carrot cake, but sometimes i just wish that it didn’t have all that overly sugary frosting! I mean some people love the sweetest treats around, however, I feel that there is definitely a need for a more balanced alternative.

I think I have finally perfected what it takes to make bite sized treats of heaven that melt in your mouth, while still living up to the decadent/rich name of being a carrot cake. The cake is not dense at all, despite what many may assume as that is typically what we get served outside.

My secret to making these really stand out is my final step before baking!! make sure you add that last sprinkle of sugar and those walnuts to create a beautifully crisp top and some crunch for that added texture!

I believe that I have the best recipe for you,

I would love for you to try out my 4 step recipe and let me know how yours came out! If you post your bakes on social media hashtag #kizendehrecipes or tag @kizendeh so ill be able to see too and possibly share your thoughts on my page!

  • 30 grams Unsalted butter Melted
  • 4-5 Medium Size Carrots Grated

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

    Have your cupcake pan greased with butter.
  • In a medium bowl mix all your wet ingredients together:
    Oil, sugar & vanilla first, then mix in one egg at a time until well combined.
    Now add all your dry ingredients bit by bit:
    flour, baking powder & cinnamon.
    Once all combined into a smooth mixture, fold in the grated carrots.
  • Divide your batter into the prepared muffin casings/ tray, once ready, sprinkle a little bit of your walnuts on top of each muffin along with a little bit of fine sugar.
    Now you are ready to Bake !! Place in the oven for 25 mins.
    Bake until golden and the top layer is springy, you can use a toothpick to check if it is cooked inside if you are unsure about taking them out. The toothpick should be inserted and come out clean if the muffins are ready.
