Carrot Apple Muffins
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! But, 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 and 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 ways to make carrot muffins should the recipe turns out good.
NOTE: I hope to update the images for this recipe which was originally made back when I first started blogging and before I took photography courses.
- If you make the recipe make sure not to over bake the muffins.
- They could become easily dried out if overbaked. My oven runs hot so I rotated half way and pulled them out several minutes early.
- You will need to watch muffins half way through to ensure to get them out on time.
- Use a clean knife or toothpick 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-cream scoop with nonstick spray prior to scooping batter into pre-lined cupcake pans. You only need to spray it once andworks the entire time! Fill each muffin liner 3/4 full.
Using a scoop for the batter really helps them be uniform in size and finish baking at the same time.
These were really yummy and pretty to serve all on one plate!
