Carrot, Orange And Hazelnut Cupcakes:


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (325°F) Gas 3.
  2. Put the sugar, eggs and oil in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) and beat until all the ingredients are well incorporated (don’t worry if the mixture looks slightly split).
  3. Slowly add the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, salt and vanilla extract and continue to beat until well mixed.
  4. Stir in the grated carrots, chopped hazelnuts and orange zest by hand until they are all evenly dispersed.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared 48 mini muffin or 32 muffin cases.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes for mini cupcakes and 15 – 18 minutes for standard cupcakes, or until golden brown and the sponge bounces back when touched.
  7. Leave the cakes to cool slightly in the tins before turning out onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  8. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting by beating together the icing sugar, butter and cream cheese until it’s light and fluffy.
  9. When the cakes are cold, ice with the cream cheese frosting and decorate with whatever you fancy.
  10. (chopped hazelnuts, a sprinkling of ground cinnamon, edible glitter…)
