    Hi there!

    Great blog! I just made a batch of these carrot cake cupcakes and boy did turn out well!!! Super delicious recipe, not too heavy, but still a nice, moist carrot cake! Easy and flavorful without being over-spiced. Taking them to my co-workers tomorrow- I am sure they will be a success.

    Cheers!

    Question – do you think I could make this in a round cake pan instead of as cupcakes? Looking for a recipe for my birthday cake! Thanks.

      Hi Lelah! Yes, you definitely can make this recipe in a cake form — I’ve done it before :)

      Just bake until the cake springs back in the center and a knife/toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30-40 minutes, depending on your cake pan size. Good luck! (and happy birthday!)

        I used a 9 inch cake pan and baked it for about 35 minutes. It turned out beautifully! Thanks.

    The Cream Cheese Frosting…most recipes call for butter along with cream cheese. I see this one doesn’t. Is there a reason before I try it? I would like to eliminate the butter if it will turn out well. I am making a large amount of carrot cake cupcakes and looking for good recipes.

      Very good question! There was no particular reason for not including the butter for the frosting, but it has turned out fine every time I make it. :)

        I love that the frosting doesn’t have butter in it, that way you can really taste the cream cheese flavor. It’s delicious!

    Thanks for posting this recipe, I made it this weekend for my mother-in-law’s birthday (carrot cake is her favorite) and it was a big hit! It was such an easy recipe too, I will definitely be making this again.

    Thanks again, Amanda

    Am I reading this recipe wrong? I don’t see any sugar or honey? Please explain.
    Thanks.

      Marjorie, the recipe calls for brown sugar, not white sugar or honey. Please let me know if you’re still confused.

    last week my husband hinted that he would really like carrot cake muffins with cream cheese frosting. having never made these before, i searched the internet for a recipe and found yours. while he was out ice fishing, i made them yesterday in a snap. imagine his surprise when he saw them on the counter. he ate one and announced “my god. these are by far the best thing you’ve ever made!” guess he likes them. :) thanks for an awesome recipe!!
