Yummy Carrot Cupcakes Recipe

Easy carrot cupcakes

Carrot cupcakes are a favorite any time of year but they seem especially appropriate for the spring.  This recipe for carrot cupcakes is adapted from my Aunty Tania’s carrot cake recipe. I love that these cupcakes aren’t too sweet and that there aren’t raisins in them (although you could add them). However you like them– these are satisfying cupcakes! Top with cream cheese frosting or add whipped cream or Cool Whip.
