Am I able to use cake flour instead of all purpose flour?
These cupcakes are fantastic! I left the extras (coconut, nuts, and raisins) out of the frosting, and added some vanilla. The cake is wonderful, moist and rich with great flavor. This frosting is less sweet than others I've tried, much nicer for cream cheese lovers. There was a bit too much batter for my 24 cupcakes, and the overflow was a bit of a hassle. Will just put a bit less in each next time, along with trying some whole wheat flour mixed in. Thanks to Mollyque for that hint!
I've made these cupcakes twice and both times they have over flowed. The second time I decreased the filling to 1/2 per cup and had the same problem. They taste great but given I was making them for a wedding, they did not look great. Won't be trying them again. Very frustrating.
These were excellent! I used fresh carrots right out of our garden, but used a different frosting recipe. The cake had a great texture and was very moist.
Made these to take to a tea and added just a decorative cream cheese icing "star" on the top of them- I made mine into mini muffins. This is a great recipe- I omitted the raisins.
OMG....I don't like carrot cake but it's my husbands favorite so I made these for him last night. I followed the directions as written but omitted the all spice and raisins and I must say these cupcakes taste GREAT!!! My daughter even likes them and she hates carrots. I will be adding this to my recipe collection.
QUESTIONI live in Ct and my boyfriend just moved to La, is it possible for me to overnight these cupcakes to him if I wrap them tightly without frosting them? My biggest concern would be the best part, the cream cheese frosting.! Can that be mailed and still stay safe to eat in 24 hrs of shipping ?
Can the recipe be made as a cake?
I have been making these cupcakes since the recipe was published in TOH almost 15 years ago. They are the best carrot cupcakes I have ever tasted, and I have had many. I was asked to bring a dessert to share Thanksgiving evening and I have no doubt these will be a hit.
