This is my all-time favorite carrot cupcake recipe!

The cupcakes always turn out so fluffy, tasty and moist. They contain fresh shred carrots and just the right amount of spices. Follow the recipe, and these carrot cupcakes will not let you down. I promise!

Don’t forget to top them off with cream cheese frosting though. Cream cheese frosting pairs beautifully with these delicious carrot cupcakes and many other baked goods actually!

You can easily make these carrot cupcakes in advance. I still remember serving these delicious carrot cupcakes at my gender reveal party. They were such a major hit. I made the cupcakes one day in advance and stored them in an airtight container. Worked perfectly!

  • 160 ml (2/3 cup) oil
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 160 gr (1 1/3 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 150 gr (3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp) granulated sugar + 50 gr (1/4 cup) brown sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 180° Celsius and line a muffin pan with paper liners.
Grate the carrots with a hand grater, set aside.
Mix the eggs and oil together in a big bowl. You can use an electric mixer for this.
Add the flour, white/brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg to the egg mix, and whisk until well combined.
Add the milk, vanilla and grated carrots. Mix until combined.
It should be a thick batter now.
Take the cupcake liners and fill each cupcake liner 1/2 full.
Transfer to oven and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with moist crumbs.  
Let the cupcakes cool down completely before decorating with frosting.
