    Triple Layer Mini Carrot Cake

    Just about every time we go to Trader Joe’s the kids will ask for me to buy one of the delicious looking mini cakes that they sell and I always tell them “Oh that looks good but you know what we can make that at home.” The problem is I leave with the inspiration to make one but so often completely forget to make it.

    Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

    Carrot cupcakes seemed like a perfect match for my first Easter brunch. I chose this recipe after reading great reviews and seeing that the ingredients were healthy. I didn’t have to do my usual tweaking that I so often like to do  ;-). I only omitted the nuts due to some allergies in the family. These cupcakes turned out moist and flavorful, tasting wonderful on their own. Let me tell you though the cream cheese frosting was a perfect match for the cupcake, giving it just a little something extra in each bite. These carrot cupcakes definitely helped in making my first brunch a success.
