carrot cupcakes

hello and salam peeps :D

been waiting for me ? hahaha . well today , i did cook something delicious , beyond my expectation and yours too ! carrot slice especially from secret recipe has always been my favourite cake . i never thought , i would be able to make one taste exactly like em ' , which eventually i managed to do it today . Alhamdulillah :D
i can describe this recipe as : much more tastier , rich and delicious compared to red velvet cupcakes . not to be forgotten , healthier . but if you prefer chocolate , you might go well with red velvet compared to carrot cupcakes . my personal opinion would say that carrot cupcakes is much much more delicious . sumpah , tak tipu !so here goes the ingredients needed :

1 1/4 cwn minyak jagung (minyak masak pun boleh)

4 biji telur
120 gm gula castor
120 gm gula perang
100 gm walnut cincang (any nuts pun boleh)
1 cawan kismis kuning (boleh ganti dengan nenas kiub, prune, any sour lah)
1 1/2 cawan carrot yang disagat250 gm tepung** (highly recommended - high protein flour)
1 sudu kecil baking soda**
1/4 sudu kecil serbuk kulit kayu manis**
1/4 sudu kecil garam
1 butter

for topping , i use red velvet recipe :) because i really love the cream cheese frosting . for the recipe for the frosting , refer to here .

p/s : i did not use baking soda & cinnamon powder . alaa , macam tak biasa pulak . hahaha . actually , last night , i ada jugak tumbuk kulit kayu manis , but then , not very fine . so i thought , malas lah letak :p if you really like spices inside your cake , do buy the ready cinnamon powder . i terlupa beli , tu pasal kne ketuk . zzzzz .

these are the ingredients needed .

i dont have penyagat at home :( so terpaksa hiris and cincang sendiri . i used approximately 2 carrots .

stuff everything inside after the basic mixture is done . i tried to find walnut , tapi takde . so i'm using almond . instead of raisins , i use prune . sedap sikit :D

sumpah macam coleslaw kan ? hahaha . don't be afraid , this is how it supposed to look like . hahaha .

place em' inside the cups .

into the microwave ! :D

meanwhile waiting for the cake to bake , i'm making the frosting . as easy as A B C . mix sugar , cream cheese , butter and vanilla essence ;)

fresh from the oven . at that point , i was really happy . Alhamdulillah jadi , hehe .

if the cupcakes is too large 'kembang' nya , just cut the excess to make it look presentable :)

spread the frosting :D

and make a swirl

do it for all 20

and now you can have it !

my very own carrot cupcakes . simple and delicious :)

tips :if you're using microwave , first bake them at 180 degree for 10-15 mins . then only , you raise the temperature to 250 degree until it is done . to know when it is ready , poke a knife or fork into the middle of the cake / cupcakes .:)
