Although in the blog I already have a previous recipe for Carrot Cupcakes, this time I’m sharing here one that’s even better! The dough was amazing, moist and fluffy. In conjunction with the frosting they make a perfect mix on the palate, so that it is not too overly sweet.
These cute and tasty Carrot Cupcakes are ideal to enjoy your coffee or tea, also if you’re hosting a brunch, so that you can include among the sweet items. And the best of all, they are ideal for celebrating birthdays. I promise you that no one will be indifferent to this delicacy.
It is also a fairly simple recipe to prepare, I used the classic metal grater for the carrot, but if you have a food processor, it will be faster and easier to get your carrot portion for this preparation.
I did two photo sessions for this recipe, because these cupcakes were so nice! I got excited this time, and well… here I’m sharing both types of photos.Print
