Sweet potatoes and carrot muffins Directions

  1. Depending on the size of your veggies this recipe makes 15 – 18 cupcakes. Line your muffin pan with paper liners and preheat the oven to 190 °C.
  2. Place sugar and oil in a bowl. Beat using an electric mixer on medium speed until the sugar is dissolved (about 1 minute) then scrape down the sides of the bowl. Beat again on medium speed and add eggs (1 at a time) for about 2 minutes for each egg.

  4. Place flour, baking powder, baking soda, all the spices and salt in a large bowl and whisk to break any lumps. Set aside.

    Turn the mixer to low speed, add grated carot and mix until just combined, then slowly add the flour mixture and stir in gently. Fold in any flour at the edges with a rubber spatula and make sure to scrape to the bottom of the bowl. Add the raisins and fold them in.

My kids aren't great fans of carrots, but they ate these up even without frosting! - parrotns
