Carrot Muffins (My favourite)

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, July 19, 2011

I've posted a recipe before for carrot muffins (Spiced Carrot Muffins), and they are delicious, but I just had to share with you the recipe for my all time favourite carrot muffins.

These are the carrot muffins my Mum always makes and I love them!  So moist and delicious, she usually serves them up without any icing, but cut in half and spread with a bit of butter.  The walnuts give them an amazing crunchy texture, although you can always leave them out if walnuts aren't your thing.

Dry Ingredients
¾ cup flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon Mixed Spice
¼ cup chopped walnuts
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon cinnamon
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup sultanas

Wet Ingredients
½ cup oil
2 grated carrots
2 beaten eggs

Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl.  In another bowl mix the wet ingredients together.
Tip the wet mixture into the dry and mix until just combined.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin tray and bake for about 20 minutes at 180°C.
Makes 6 large muffins, or 12 medium.

  7. Hi JuRita - couldn't find your email to send you back my answers, so here they are!

    I used cream cheese icing - you can find the recipe here:

    Sultanas are dried green grapes - sweeter than raisins (from dried red grapes).
