Carrot Cake Cupcakes

This year I didn't intend to make another Carrot cake version. I had been preparing a rabbit-shaped Carrot cake just before Easter and I would have crossed it off my checklist for spring baking. But instead, in my food delivery package, I got the most beautiful bunch of organic carrots.   I subscribe to a service which ships imperfect organic fruit and vegetables and still have something less than scratchy to receive. It was good to have fresh vegetables at home during this time. It's the first thing we run out of and it keeps us eating good every two weeks.

That may sound dumb, but I really got my spirits from this awesome rainbow Carrot supply! These are the tiny things. I can't wait to thank them! I can't wait! Naturally, for these cupcakes, you don't need rainbow Carrots – orange is and will be the gold standard always.

The size of grated Carrot for Carrot cake is different from the other food writers. I have never really been thinking much about it. For wide but feathery bottles, I just use the biggest holes in my box grater. You can make it any size you want, as long as it is small enough to bake in the oven.

Full cupcake papers roughly 3/4. The baked cupcakes does not have a wide crown on top, as the Carrots and pineapples are packed.

These little cakes are so soft and moist with the occasional pocket of Carrot and chopped pecans. It's pretty much everything you want from classic Carrot cake, and it's not a bad way to get in a daily dose of fruits and veggies! (Wink.)

Happy baking!

These small cakes are so fluffy and moist with sometimes Carrot pockets and pancakes. It's pretty much everything you want from traditional Carrot cake, and this isn't a bad way of having fruits and veggies everyday! (Wink.) Baking well! (Wink.)
