Frosted Carrot Muffins

Rather than save stacks of magazines from years gone by,  I make it a habit to rip out the pages from my magazines that I am super impressed with.  And that’s where this recipe came from.  The original recipe for these muffins was featured in one of my favorite magazines; Country Living (January 2009).

Carrot Muffins

I significantly modified the original recipe, and while there is a little more tweaking to yet to be done, I think I am onto something here.  Frosted Carrot Muffin anyone?

Frosted Carrot Muffins

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line 16 standard-size muffin pan cups with baking wrappers and set aside.

1/3 c. olive oil

1/4 c. granulated sugar

1/3 c. brown sugar

2 large eggs

3 tbsp. milk

1 c. grated carrot

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 c. all-purpose flour

In a large bowl, cream together oil, sugars, milk, and eggs.  Mix  in salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and flour.  Fold in grated carrot.  Divide batter equally between baking cups.  Bake for about 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.  Immediately remove muffins from the pan and cool completely.  Frost with your favorite frosting recipe. 

As far as the tweaking goes, I’m going to work on making this muffin slightly moister.  I’ll be sure to update you once I accomplish that.

Do you rip pages from your favorite magazines to refer to later?  Or, do you have stacks of magazines to refer back to?

  1. Eileen…I have such a collection of ripped out magazine pages and all the best intentions of making every one of them some day! Glad you had this recipe saved….they look scrumptious! (I love seeing the bits of carrots….so pretty!)

  2. I love carrot cake, carrot muffins, carrot bread…so I will be making this, and soon! Thank you for sharing. And I need to go through my magazines. I’ve earmarked so many recipes I’ve yet to try!

  3. Hello dear friend! Nice to see your post. Looks delish. Actually I have stacks of magazines and also oodles of recipe pages ripped from other mags. I’m a recipe hoarder I guess – but done sort of neatly. 🙂 The muffins have such a great color! Talk soon. Hugs! D
