Eggless Carrot-Apple Cupcake

For Day 3 for the Kid's potluck party, here are some cupcakes. Can kid's party ever be complete without a cake? A resounding 'NO' from my kids :).

So to please my kids, here are some cupcakes which they enjoyed with their favorite toppings of frosting with sprinkles! All the frosting was done by my older one.

Eggless Carrot-Apple Cupcake

Recipe Adapted from here
Ingredients - 

*Self Rising Flour 3 cups
Cinnamon Powder 1/2 tsp
Carrot, peeled and grated 1 cup
Granny Smith Apple, peeled, cored and grated 1/2 cup
**Milk 1 cup + Apple Cider Vinegar 1 tsp
Honey 1/4 cup
***Olive Oil 1/2 cup

*I used 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour + 2 cups All Purpose Flour + 4.5 tsp of Baking Powder + 3/4 tsp of salt
** Buttermilk can be used instead
*** Oil can be reduced by half by adding 1/2 cup of apple sauce

Note - If the cup cakes are being consumed as is without any frosting, then increase the sweetener as needed. These cupcakes are just about sweet with the frosting. 

Also add a little more milk (upto 1/4 cup) as the cupcakes were a tad dry to my comfort.

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, sift the self rising flour along with cinnamon powder.

Mix in the grated carrot and apple and set aside.

In another bowl, add the liquid ingredients (Milk, apple cider vinegar, honey and oil.

Pour into the flour and stir well until just combined. Don't over mix.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Prepare the muffin plates by arranging the paper liners in them. I used 24 mini muffin plate and 12 regular muffin plate. 

Pour the batter into the muffin cups making sure they are 3/4 ths full.

Bake for about 15 for the mini muffins and 20 min for the regular muffins (or until a tooth pick comes out clean upon testing).

Upon cooling, frost them as required and serve.

Preparation Time 15 min +  Baking time 20 min
Makes 24 mini and 12 regular muffins
