Juicy and tender carrot muffins with nuts are simply to cook and amazingly tasty. One more attractive thing is that these cupcakes are decorated with walnuts and pieces of chocolate. This dessert looks impressive and appetizing.
Here are some advices, helping you to cook perfect muffins.
The first thing you need to know is that dry and liquid ingredients must be mixed quickly in separate bowls. Then these 2 parts have to be quickly combined. Only in this case sponge cake will be tender and high.
You may use different types of dairy for cooking this dish. The main thing is that it should be warm.
You also need to buy baking powder. This ingredient should be added when the dough is almost ready. As for the flour, it should be sifted. All these steps are important for making sponge cake soft and tender.
If you want to make the dough darker, add cocoa powder. It should also be sifted through the sieve.
As for the walnuts, they should be clean. You may also fry them on the dry pan to make them tastier. You may also add some other ingredients into the dough. Here is the list for you:
· Berries (fresh or frozen);
· Fruit slices (apples, pears, cherries);
· Chocolate pieces;
· Condensed milk;
· Dry fruits (dry apricots, raisins, prune, dates);
· Caramelized nuts.
Still, classical recipe is also interesting and worth your attention. Carrot cake is traditional English dessert. So, let’s get down to cooking amazing muffins with bright carrot, nuts and cinnamon!

Instructions:
  1. Break eggs. Mix them in the bowl with honey and yoghurt. Whip everything until smooth.
  2. Sift the flour through the sieve.
  3. Add ½ of the flour into the egg mass. Then add the rest of the flour. It needs to be done for the dough not to be lumpy.
  4. Add cinnamon and vegetable oil. Mix everything.
  5. Peel carrot and grate. Squeeze juice. Crush nuts. Add these ingredients into the bowl with the dough. Leave it for 15 minutes.
  6. Fill silicone forms with the sough. Forms shouldn`t be full as the dough will grow in size while cooking.
  7. Preheat the oven to 338 degrees. Bake your muffins for 40-50 minutes. You may check whether they are ready, using a toothpick.
  8. Take them out of the oven and leave to cool down. They may be served with any topping you like. By the way, carrot gives muffins colour instead of taste. Therefore, you may serve them with anything you like. For example, with mascarpone or ricotta.

If you want your cakes to have chocolate taste, add cocoa powder into the dough and decorate muffins with pieces of chocolate. This is great combination for kids and adults. Experiment with ingredients, and create perfect desserts for you and your family! Bon Appetite!
