Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Guaranteed to be moist and delicious, this Carrot Cake Cupcake recipe is a sure winner!


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups grated carrots


  • Combine dry ingredients - flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Beat the eggs, sugar and oil in a separate bowl.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet egg mixture.
  • Stir in carrots and mix well.
  • Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before removing form pans to wire racks.
  • Frost with my favorite Cream Cheese Frosting - it is OH so yummy!
  • Top with adorable hand-made fondant carrots, walnuts (if that's your thing) or cake crumbs from one of the carrot cupcakes.
