Carrot muffins with orange crème frosting
(makes 12 pcs)
- 160 g cane sugar
- 2 whole eggs
- 100 ml vegetable oil
- 280 g grated carrots
- 170 g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- pinch of baking soda
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- handful of chopped walnuts
- 250 g MEGGLE Creme
- 70 g icing sugar
- zest from ½ orange
Heat oven to 180°C and line a muffin tin with muffin liners.
Beat yolks and sugar until pale and fluffy and gradually whisk in oil.
Add grated carrots, flour mixed with baking powder and baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
Eventually toss in handful of roughly chopped walnuts and divide the batter evenly between the muffin liners. The liners should be filled ¾ full as the batter tends to rise.
Bake for 25 -30 minutes. Take the muffin tin out of the oven and remove the muffins from the tin to cool.
For the frosting whish MEGGLE Creme with sugar and add orange zest. Refrigerate for half an hour to ensure it has thickened properly. Transfer frosting into a pastry bag for piping it evenly on top of the muffins.
To decorate, use orange zest, ground walnuts or pieces of pieces of fresh orange.
