1 ‘A’ grade/medium egg

50g Devondale (or any full cream milk)

100g coarse white sugar

A pinch of salt

60g vegetable oil (sunflower, canola etc)

100g plain/all purpose flour – I used Bake King

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2tsp cinnamon powder (you can grate it from the stick)

65g thinly sliced carrot strips

30 g medium, coarse walnuts

~Frosting~

20g softened butter (unsalted)

80g Philadelphia cream cheese

40g icing sugar

1 tsp orange juice/zest

STEPS [batter]

  1. Mix the egg, milk, sugar, salt & oil into a medium-sized bowl
  2. Whisk till frothy
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate soda and cinnamon in a small bowl
  4. Transfer dry ingredients into the medium bowl, but don’t overmix
  5. Add the carrots & walnuts
  6. Whisk lightly
  7. Fill up to 3/4 in cupcake holder
  8. Line in baking tray, bake for 17-18 mins at 180deg
  9. Test with a skewer/toothpick and cool before frosting

STEPS [frosting]

Toss all the ingredients into a medium-sized bowl. Whisk at medium speed to ensure cream cheese sets in.

Pipe into a bag (but don’t cut the tip yet). Refrigerate for 15-20 mins. Pipe as you please.

~Making my lovely kitties~

Verdict: They’re every bit as awesome as the banana-walnut cupcakes; but they’ve got a unique twist & flavour *the trick is to add a dash of orange juice to the cream cheese + don’t forget my lovely kitties!!*
