Carrot Cake muffins –kids corner

This might not be the healthiest way of persuading kids to eat vegetables, but once you have got them to eat these muffins, you can then try them on the savoury version. They´ll be astonished if you admit that the muffins have carrots in them! Odds are adults will love them, too!

Ingredients:
4 carrots
1/2 c. walnuts
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
6 T. butter
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 oz. cream cheese
1 egg yolk
2 T. sugar

Directions:
Place carrots, walnuts, and eggs in a blender. Blend until very, very finely ground.
Transfer to a large bowl and beat in sugar and butter. Add flour, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder (double the amount of baking powder to 1 tsp. if you’re baking at low altitudes), and salt. Mix ingredients together, making sure not to overmix. Spoon into muffin tins, prepared with cupcake wrappers. In a small bowl, beat together cream cheese, egg yolk, and sugar. Spoon 1-2 teaspoons in the center of the carrot batter for each muffin.

Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until the centers of the muffins are set.
