Easter is right around the corner, and one of my favorite recipes I want to start this blog off with, is carrot cupcakes! These deliciously moist cupcakes are perfect for spring time. The cream cheese frosting is a lovely touch for those who are not a fan of overly sweet frosting. Fresh carrots and the mix of several spices makes this cupcake a favorite in my house.
When I was a child, I was always excited for this time of year. Here in Wyoming, it is about the time of year where there is hope that the weather will soon be getting nicer (even though we will still see some snow storms until May). Along with nicer weather came Easter, Spring Break, and of course, carrot cake!
I originally tried out this recipe for a bake sale, and it was a hit! I think the secret to these cupcakes is the applesauce. That natural sweetness and flavor of the applesauce perfectly compliments the carrots, walnuts, raisins, and spices in the cupcakes. I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
