Cupcakes courtesy of Myldred!

A Carrot-Walnut-Raisin Recipe from my new kindred spirit....Myldred.

See This Post for the story!

1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup oil
1 (8-oz.) can crushed pineapple in unsweetened juice, undrained
1 egg
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottoms only of 16 muffin cups or line with paper baking cups. In large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
  • In small bowl, combine oil, pineapple and egg; blend well. Add to flour mixture; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in carrots, raisins and walnuts. Fill greased muffin cups 3/4 full.
  • Bake at 375°F. for 18 to 22 minutes or until muffins are light brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan. 
  • I added a cream cheese frosting!

They look great! I've actually been looking to try some new carrot-cake type recipes... And I rarely bake whole cakes, since there are only two of us.

Going to have to try this out!
