Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting

I love carrot cakes. I use to buy them at work until one day I came across a recipe that changed my life LOL. It was an old photocopy my mom had for years and when I saw it I just couldn’t help it, I had to scan that recipe make it at home.

It’s pretty easy to make and it tastes so good! Dana gave me the idea of making it as cupcakes and invited me to make a variation of her buttercream frosting from her Vampire kiss Cupcakes. I definitely did it. Hope you like it!

Carrot Cake cupcake Batter

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4/fan 160C.
  • Separate the egg whites from the yolk.
  • Mix in a blender the oil, sugar, carrot and the yolks. When it’s done, beat the egg whites in a big bowl {with a whisk or a stand mixer} until it forms hard peaks. Without stopping pour the carrot mixture in and mix well.
  • Add the flour with the baking powder and cinnamon and mix for about 2 minutes. It’s ready.

  • Now pour the batter evenly for 12 cupcakes that have already been lined with cupcakes liners and bake for 30-40 minutes, until it feels firm and springy when you press it in the center. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, and carefully take them out of the cupcake tin and place them on a wired rack.
  • Wait until they are completely cool to add the frosting or it will melt away.

Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting

  • With a stand mixer and a whisk attachment, whip the butter for 5 minutes over medium-high speed. Scrap the bowl at least one time during those 5 minutes.
  • Add the powdered sugar little by little on slow speed and add the cinnamon and the vanilla scraping the bowl once. Whip it again at medium-high speed for 2 more minutes. The mixture should be light and fluffy.
  • Decorate the cupcakes as you like, serve and enjoy!

    Hi! Instead of eggs what should i use becoz i m pure veg and i want to try this cupcake so can i u reply me as soon as possible. Thank u mam. Have a nice day

    1. Camila

      Hi Rushali, to be honest I have no idea. I’m not vegan at all so I wouldn’t know. Sorry I can’t help in that particular matter. maybe you can ask among vegan friends. They might know.
      Thank you so much for your interest in making my carrot cupcakes and for stopping by!

  2. Camila

    Hi! Can i use Canola Oil instead of Veg. oil? and if i could just use 1cup of sugar insted of 2cups will affect the whike cupcake? becuz i’ll give it to my grandparents.. and it should be less sweet… can i have ur reply asap. thankyou so much mam. have a nice day ?

    1. Camila

      Hi Kyzia,
      Yes you can use Canola oil. As long as the oil is not animal, is fine! As for the sugar, I don’t really know what would be the result since I have never done it with less than 2 Cups. This cake is not that sweet though. If you want to try, I would suggest Add 1/2 cup less but again I cannot say what the result would be. Thank you so much for your interest in making this cake!!!
      Hugs!
