Carrot Cupcakes

So I wanted to make a carrot cake but did not have the time so I decided to make it into cupcakes. They take less than half the time but taste exactly the same and you're able to take sneak more without noticing the huge slice of cake missing.
So let me tell you how to make these babies.  



Ingredients

150g Melted Butter
50g Sultanas
2 Eggs
140g Sugar
170g Self Raising Flour
2 tsp Cinnamon 
1 tsp Bicarbonate Soda
140g Carrots
50g Walnuts


Topping
200g Soft Cheese
50g Softened Butter
85g Icing Sugar





So you need to start off by preheating your oven to 180c then melting the butter in the microwave 10 seconds at a time until its melted. In another bowl add the flour,cinnamon,bicarb,sultanas and walnuts. Into the melted butter you need to add the sugar and the eggs and give it a quick mix together then pour into the dry ingredients and whisk until there are no lumps. The last step you need to do is grate the carrot into the mixture and give it a quick mix. I know there is a lot of mixing but trust me it will be worth it in the end! So once you've done this you need to fill cupcakes cases 3/4 full the put them in the oven for 20 minutes. 


While they are cooling down it is time to make the cream cheese icing. All you need to do is whip the soft cheese and butter together for roughly 5 minutes or until it is a light,creamy colour. Then bit by bit add the icing sugar,sieved to remove any lumps of icing. When the cupcakes have completely cooled then spread a spoonful of icing on top of the cakes. That is it for the making of them. A lot to follow but it is pretty simple. If you have any questions or any requests feel free to leave a comment,thanks :) x
