Carrot Cupcakes

by | Sep 2, 2014 | CSA Member Updates, Recipes

Ingredients:
For the cupcakes:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lb. (6-7 medium) carrots, peeled
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups canola, safflower or vegetable oil
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
12 oz. cream cheese, cold
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin pan with baking cup liners.
2.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt; set aside.
3.  In a food processor fitted with a shredding disk, shred the carrots. Transfer the carrots to the bowl with the dry ingredients and set aside.
4.  Rinse out the bowl of the food processor and fit with the metal blade. Process the sugars and eggs until frothy and combined, about 20 seconds. With the machine running, add the oil in a steady stream through the feed tube. Continue to process until the mixture is light in color and combined, about 20 more seconds.
5.  Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the carrots and dry ingredients until incorporated and no streaks of flour remain.

Yield: 20-22 cupcakes.
