When I saw this recipe on NY1 yesterday, my mouth started watering and I just knew I had to share it with you! If you visit NY1’s website, you can even watch an instructional video. (Warning: Don’t watch this if you’re hungry!)

Ingredients for 2 dozen cupcakes:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 tbs baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup of grated carrot
  • 1 cup of grated apple
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Ingredients for the yummy frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Mix frosting ingredients until smooth, and then put in fridge. Preheat oven to 350. Combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, carrots and apples, and mix well. Add vegetable oil, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla and mix well. Divide your batter into paper-lined cupcake pans. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cupcakes cool, and then top with chilled frosting.  Then enjoy!
