If you love carrot cake, you will definitely love these Carrot Cake Cupcakes! Topped with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting, these are a must make. Moist, flavourful and so delicious.
When thoughts of spring and Easter roll around, I immediately crave carrot cake. Tender, spicy delicious carrot cake with some kind of cream cheese frosting…the best. And over the years I’ve made quite a few carrot cake recipes, but none quite like this. These Carrot Cake Cupcakes are SO good. And topped with a Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting…THE best. You’re going to want to try these, I promise.
Now I know that I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m going to say it again, having kids who love to bake is the greatest thing ever. My high school aged daughter loves to bake. Loves it. And she’s good at it. So anytime she asks to get in the kitchen, I am happy to oblige, because we all know something delicious is coming our way. This past weekend was no exception when she made these Carrot Cake Cupcakes.
Simple, delicious ingredients.
These carrot cake cupcakes are made with delicious ingredients like homemade applesauce, fresh grated carrots and coconut oil, making them SO moist and flavourful…they actually remind me a lot of these Morning Glory Muffins. And when paired with the cinnamon cream cheese frosting, they’re amazing. Like bakery-made-amazing.
Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
We topped these cupcakes off with sprinkles of lightly toasted coconut, adding great flavour but also making them look extra pretty.
Delicious any time of year!
No one is going to be able to resist these bites of heaven. Make them for Easter, brunch, dessert or any special occasion…any ordinary day is a special occasion too! I hope you love them as much as we do.
Carrot Cake Cupcake Recipe Tips:
- If you don’t have coconut oil, you can use vegetable oil.
- I like to use homemade applesauce in my baking recipes, but you can absolutely use a pre-made store-bought applesauce.
- Feel free to add raisins or walnuts to your cupcakes.
