Dear Creatives, I found several recipes for carrot muffins but, they had spices I didn’t like, along with dried fruits I am not fond of so I decided to create my own. It turned out yummy! & of course you can change the fruit or dried fruit in these to suit your tastes. I think next time I might take it a step further & decrease the sugar by adding applesauce. I didn’t try doing that yet, but the next time I do that I will update the recipe with the alternative if it comes out good.
If you make the recipe make sure not to over bake the muffins. They could become easily dried out if over baked. My oven runs hot so I rotated half way & pulled them out several minutes early. You will need to watch muffins half way through to ensure to get them out on time. I use a clean knife to see if it comes out clean with no batter on it, then they are done.
One of the biggest tips I love to use is spraying an ice-scream scoop with non stick spray prior to scooping batter & filling pre lined cupcake pans. You only need to spray it once & works the entire time!
It really helps them be uniform in size & finish baking at the same time.
These were really yummy & pretty to serve all on one plate!
