Carrot Cake Cupcakes Recipe

Instead of one large carrot cake, how about individual carrot cake cupcakes!  These would be great for Easter dinner with the family!

Carrot-Cake-Cupcakes-easter-recipe-IngredientsYes, there are real vegetables in these cupcakes! You can share that information with your kids or not…you be the judge.

You could also make these cupcakes using a cake mix, but you’ll be amazed at how easy a scratch recipe can be.


Peel then shred enough carrots to make 4 cups.
If your kiddos hate veggies, try getting them into the kitchen with you. Kids tend to like foods they help make.


Fold shredded carrots into the cupcake batter.
