Study Snack Carrot Muffins

I love procrastibaking (procrastinating from study by baking) and so I wanted to make some carrot muffins to snack on while I study. I found many recipes, but none that I liked fully, so I sort of mixed them together and the result was delicious :) My family loved them :)

Ingredients
Makes: 12 muffins

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml vegetable/canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cups sultanas (optional)

Directions
Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C.
  2. Line a 12 x muffin tin with patty pan cases and grease well (I use those silicone reusable patty pan cases).
  3. Sift together dry ingredients in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  4. Beat together eggs, oil and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add the carrots and sultanas and stir to combine.
  5. Fold the dry ingredients into the large bowl bit by bit, but be careful not to over-mix. Your batter is going to look quite thick and stodgy, don't worry, it is supposed to look like this.
  6. Spoon the batter into the patty pan cases.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes (or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean).
  8. Cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes then turn out into a wire rack to cool (make sure you take them out of the patty pan cases if you use the silicone ones, or they will go soft).

Substitution

*you could use 1 cup wholemeal flour and 1 cup white flour. **you could add more nutmeg, depending on how spicy you want them to be.

Serving suggestion

These are wonderful served hot out of the oven with margarine/butter and a cup of tea.
