These muffins are so delicious and must be healthy if there are carrots in them.. right?! That's what we will tell ourselves anyway ;)

  • 125 g soft brown sugar
  • 125 g Kerrygold butter
  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 225 g plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ orange juice and zest
  • 200 g carrots

Icing Ingredients:


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Line your cupcake trays with paper cases.
  2. Beat the sugar and butter together. Fold in the flour, spices, baking soda and powder. Grate in the orange zest and juice, then add a pinch of sea salt.
  3. Coarsely grate the carrots and chop the walnuts, then fold into the batter.
