As I am learning to cook dinners and good meals for my family, baking is something I actually am really good at. Of course keeping my sweet tooth happy has never been a problem. Yesterday I tested a new recipe out but made a few alterations of my own to make it perfecto!
Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake Muffins
2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
2 tsp of baking soda
2 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of all spice
1 cup of cinnamon chocolate chips
1 cup of applesauce
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
6 egg whites
3 cups of peeled, graded and chopped carrots
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients. Then combine them together and beat for 2 minutes.
For muffins bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Basically until you can pull a tooth pick out of the middle muffin with out stuff on in. It needs a nice smooth exit.
For Cake bake at 350 in 2 greased 8" round pans.
For the (optional) Cream Cheese Frosting
8oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 stick of margarine or butter, also softened
2 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar (add more to thicken)
2 tsp of vanilla extract
Blend the cream cheese, vanilla extract and butter then sift or slowly mix in the powdered sugar.
