Carrot Cupcakes

These Carrot Cupcakes are really moist and keep really well.

This carrot cupcake recipe is another of those easy,foolproof recipes. The hardest part of this recipe is grating the carrots and we all know that takes hardly any time or effort.

I never feel guilty eating these carrot cake cupcakes as I think of them as a healthy recipe! (Well, it's a lot healthier than other snacks I could be eating!)

I always add the chopped walnuts, but it is optional, and can be left out for anyone with a nut allergy or for small children.

If I have used walnuts in the recipe, I like to pipe the cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and then place a walnut (or crushed walnuts) on top.
