I know I have nt posted anything new for long time on my pastries page, as I couldn’t get much time for my baking :) . Each time I think to do that, but ended with something else, this time even my Bf was anxious to have my pastry.. So, after a long time, inspite of my schedules,I found a time for baking, the reason why i am saying this is, the muffin which I made is for those who are really in the race and not getting time for baking, as this is really an easy one, and you don’t have to use any electric mixers. All you need is a whisker or just a ladle to mix the dough.The key ingredient for this muffin is the apples and carrots, so grate it to tiny if you can by a food processor or by manual grating.

At my home, everytime I end up with wasting carrots,so was just thinking to make something out of it, and this flashed into me, when I visited some pastry shops here. Not just the carrots, I have also added few grated apples, which added a extra taste to the muffins.

A muffin (American-style muffin in the UK) is a type of semi-sweet cake or quick bread that is baked in portions appropriate for one person. They are similar to cupcakes, although they are usually less sweet and lack icing. You could also do some icing if you wish else, you can serve it without anything on top of it,as I like that way :) Here you go.. Enjoy your weekend !

  • All-purposeflour- 1 ½ Cups
  • Grated raw carrot-1 ½  cups
  • Apple- 1 Grated
  • Sugar- ¾ Cup
  • Cinnamon powder- 1 Tspn
  • Eggs- 2
  • Any Oil- ½ Cup
  • Vanilla Extract- ½ Tspn
  • Baking Soda- 1 Tspn
  • Baking Powder- 1 Tspn
  • Raisins- ½ Cup
  • Salt- ¼ Tspn


  • In a bowl mix all purpose flour, salt,baking powder,sugar,soda and cinnamon and set aside (Step 1)
  • To the flour add the grated apple and carrots and mix well (Step 2)
  • In a another bowl, mix the egg with vanilla extract,oil and whisk well (Step 3,4)
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix well (Step 5).
  • If you have a ice cream scooper, use that to fill in your cup cake holes (reason being, if you take a scoop that will suffice for the complete muffin else it may over flow and the shape will not be proper) (Step 6).
  • Set into the oven, and after its baked, transfer to the wire rack and serve after its cooled completely.
If you wish to make it such a way with the folded design at the end like how I did, all you need is a cup cake wrapper, I used the plastic(Oven safe) wrapper.After you all done, just prick the sides of the cake by the toothpick and it comes out without sticking in it.
