- 2 eggs
- 140 grams of sugar

- 140 grams of common flour (1 cup)
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder (optional)
- 1 teaspoon of nutmeg (optional)
- 1½ teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 180 grams of carrot finely grated
Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
Start beating the 2 eggs and the sugar until you get one creamy and white mix, with a silky and shiny texture.
Add the oil while you keep beating at low speed.
Sift the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking powder all together into the previous preparation. Add the pinch of salt and mix gently to integrate.
Whisk with electric mixer very gently until no flour remains. Once all the dry ingredients are integrated, add the grated carrot and mix by hand with a spatula. You will see how the mixture is no longer so dense due to the juice of the carrot.
You already have the carrot cupcake dough ready, so all you have to do is fill the molds. Take them to the oven preheated to 180 ° C and let them bake for about 22 minutes depending on the oven.
Trick: In this step you can add, if you wish, chopped walnuts (80 grams).
When you take them out of the oven, let them cool for 5 minutes.
Trick: To make sure they are well cooked, prick with the knife in the center of one of them.
You can serve your rich fluffy carrot muffins without topping, with icing sugar or with a cheese frosting if you want to give them a more striking presentation.
