Carrot Cake Cupcakes II

Traditionally Carrot Cake is made with oil,
I am not very fond of oil in cakes so here is my recipe

Weigh the eggs still in shells,
the weight of Eggs in Butter (softened), Sugar, and Flour
Half teaspoon Mixed Spice, Carrot finely grated,
about 3oz chopped nuts (optional)
Beat the the Eggs, Butter and Sugar until white in colour
Sift Flour and Mixed Spice and gently fold in to mixture
Gently fold in Carrot and Nuts

Spoon into Cake Cases

Cook 180 degrees centigrade (350 degrees Fahrenheit, Gas 4)
for about 20 to 25 minutes

Butter Icing

4ozs Softened Butter, 8ozs Icing Sugar

Beat together and pipe onto cakes

add Chocolate Sprinkles (optional)

  7. Hello Julie

    Love the look of the cakes! A recipe to try out! I too bought the Tesco spot ironing board cover but in pink and it didn't fit my ironing board either. I threw the packaging out so couldn't return it! They have done it so that it fits their ironing boards..It is annoying!
