This is a very moist and light carrot muffin. It's not too sweet and not greasy like other carrot muffins or cakes. The icing is optional but recommended!
Beautiful muffins - lovely and soft and very easy. I used cheerful butter icing (from this site) as I didn't have the icing ingredients, and didn't put any walnuts in - but still a great tasting muffin - 01 Jul 2009
I made this recipe for my boyfriend's birthday, his favourite cake is carrot cake. They turned out well, he loved them...I topped them with a few curls of shaved white chocolate for pizzaz! The only complaint I have is that the recipe for the icing makes a totally ridiculous amount of icing - a big waste of ingredients!! Next time I'd cut the icing recipe at least in half. - 10 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe was fabulous!! I doubled the cupcake recipe and kept the frosting recipe as is and had just the right amount of frosting. I found that once the frosting was on the cupcakes the orange flavor was just right, not overpowering at all. I used 1 C. whole wheat flour to 2 C. all-purpose flour and substituted coconut for the walnuts. I kept everything else the same and got rave reviews and many requests for this recipe! I definitely recommend using this recipe. - 10 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
