Carrot Cupcakes

Ok, this post is kinda a delayed post, I made this cupcakes for a national day celebration at my SIL's place. Wanted to make a simple cupcakes for the kids to decorate with the fondant icing I made in my earlier post. As usual, wanted my kid to eat something healthy instead of just sugar laden cakes, so, search the link and found this Carrot Cake recipe from It was really easy to make and it actually tasted quite nice, it doesn't have the carrot taste and the kids ate it like any other cakes. Am going to make this cakes again, a definite keeper for me.

Ingredients & Directions
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (I opmitted this)
  • 2 cups white sugar (I replace this with 3/4 of brown sugar)
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups grated carrots
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9 inch round cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cinnamon and sugar. Add the oil and eggs, mix until blended, then stir in the carrots and nuts. Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven. A toothpick inserted into the cake should come out clean. Cool cakes on wire racks before removing from pans.
