the recipe was an all-recipes situation. Check out the original here.
first I preheated the oven to 350 degrees and I buttered the bottoms, only, of the muffin tins.
next time I would use muffin cup liners because it was a little hard (but not too hard) to get the muffins out of the tins.
then I mixed together:
1 1/3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
then I whisked briskly 3 eggs and 1 cup of sugar, then I added 3/4 cup of vegetable oil and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
then I added in the 2 cups of finely grated carrots that I had grated earlier. I washed the carrots and then grated them. I thought that maybe I should have peeled the carrots and I was worried that the muffins would be bitter - but they were not!
finally, I folded in the dry ingredients, then I ladled the mix into the muffin tins and baked it for 18 minutes.
while they were baking I put two tablespoons of butter and two ounces of cream cheese in the microwave for about 20 seconds. then I popped them into a bowl with 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. then I beat it with a wooden spoon - and it was frosting!
when the muffins came out, I used a knife to help them out and once they had cooled on the rack for a bit, I used a knife to spread frosting on them. and then I got to eat them, and share them!
