Carrot Muffins

I had some carrots which had to be used soon..Deciding to make something different I was on a hunt for recipes..Landed upon muffin recipes..And that is how this carrot muffin came alive..This muffin is loaded with flavorful ingredients like toasted nuts, sweetened coconut and grated carrots. It turned out soft and moist and of course delicious too..I had it with store brought frosting and some with a topping of whipped cream..Here goes my carrot muffin recipe..


Ingredients (18 to 20 muffins)

Grated raw carrot - 2 cups
All purpose flour - 2 cups
Sugar - 11/4 cups
Walnuts/Pecans toasted and coarsely chopped - 1/4 cup
Baking soda - 1/2 teaspoon
Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
Ground cinnamon - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Eggs - 2
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Vanilla extract - 1 teaspoon
Vegetable oil - 1/4 cup



Toast the pecans or walnuts for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant.Chop them coarsely.Peel and finely grate the carrots.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Place paper liners in 18 muffin cups.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon. Stir in the nuts and coconut.
In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, oil, and vanilla extract.
Fold the wet ingredients, along with the grated carrot, into the flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. Evenly divide the batter between the prepared muffin cups and bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. After about 10 minutes remove the muffins from the pans and cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
