Wow, it has been way too long since my last post.  I have been busy traveling and seeing old friends, pretty good excuse if you ask me!  Anyway, on to the cooking. 

Tonight I whipped up a batch of these delicious cupcakes inspired from Smitten Kitchen.  I made a few alterations as follows:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • no nuts (I forgot to buy them!)
  • substituted plain non-fat yogurt for the oil

This recipe was so easy.  The hardest part was shredding the carrots, good thing I had my roommate to keep my company. 

I had a memory lapse at the grocery store and only purchased one packed of cream cheese so I only made 1/2 of amount of frosting.  Honestly it turn out to be plenty, I even had a bunch left over!  The recipe yield 24 cupcake but I chose to make about 18 full size cupcakes and use the rest of the batter to make mini cupcakes!  I don’t know what it is but I just love love love mini cupcakes! 


My favorite thing about these was they were not super sweet–plus I really love cream cheese frosting!  I suggest you try making a batch of these!
