Carrot Cake Cupcakes / كعكة الجزر – CookingWithAlia – Episode 428

Let's kick off the cake decorating series with this wonderful carrot cake cupcake recipe!!! INGREDIENTS: 200 grams (7 oz.) raw carrots 40 grams (1.4 oz.) raw unsalted walnuts 5-6 dates 180 grams (1 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon A small pinch ground cloves 1 teaspoon baking powder 3 large eggs 120 grams (1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons) white granulated sugar A pinch of salt 120 ml (1/2 cup) grams canola oil RECIPE: Step 1 – Prepare the Ingredients - First, peel the carrots then grate them using the small holes of the grater - Chop the walnuts - Remove the tip and pits of dates, then chop them into small pieces Step 2 – Make the Batter - In a sifter, combine the flour, ground cinnamon, baking powder, and a pinch of ground cloves. Sift into a large bowl. - In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, the sugar, and a pinch of salt. Whip with a hand mixer for around 3 minutes until you get a thick whitish mixture. - Slowly add the canola oil while beating continuously for another 2 minutes. - Add the dry mixture to the egg mixture 1/3 at time. Use your spatula to fold the ingredients in a gentle circular movement, from top to bottom, so we keep the nice fluffy volume of the whipped eggs. - Once the batter is smooth and creamy, add the grated carrots, chopped walnuts, and dates. Continue folding the ingredients until well incorporated. Step 3 – Bake the Cupcakes - Place a piping bag in a wide cup and pour the cake batter in it. - Cut the tip of the piping bag and pipe the batter in cupcake liners that you already placed in your cupcake baking pan. - Fill the cupcakes liners 2/3 of the way full as the cupcakes will puff up when baked! - Bake in a preheated oven to 360 F / 180 C for about 25 minutes. - Once done insert a knife in the center of a cupcake. The knife should come out clean, that’s how you know the cupcakes are ready! If not, you have to bake them longer.
