So I found two recipes, the second one hubby is not too fond of as it contains a pet food hate for him. Mention the word Carrot and he literally goes orange at the thought of putting it in his mouth.
I do still want to make the carrot cake cupcakes, but I have had too many other things on my proverbial plate to make them since I made the cupcakes being showcased today.
They're called Ruby Red cupcakes, why they're called ruby red, I have no idea, because I put about half a bottle of red food colouring in (recipe called for only a teaspoon - 5ml's) and it still looked like chocolate! Not very fancy if you ask me.
Step One: Creaming the butter, sugar and vanilla essence
Step Two: Sifting together the dry ingredients
Step Three: I had a really HUGE fail moment and my Electric mixer died on me. RIP
Step Four: Mix dry and wet ingredients together, add buttermilk and red food colouring.
Step Five: Place cupcake wrappers in baking tins (or in my case, silicone 'tins') and fill halfway with cupcake mix.
Step Six: Watch very closely while in oven, allowing mouth to salivate and drool onto floor. This creates anticipation for the baked goodness to come.
Step Seven: Repeat cupcake baking until all the mixture is used, I ended up with 36 chocolate looking goodies.
Step Eight: Cool cupcakes, make
Step Nine: Ice Cupcakes and place in airtight containers to keep fresh until devoured.
