Carrot & Walnut Muffin Recipe

Carrot and walnut muffin
It turns out you guys really like my recipe posts so I'm back with another one! This delicious recipe is courtesy of Whitworths and it's so good! I literally love carrot cake, I could eat it everyday but this recipe combines it with walnuts which takes it to a whole new level. This recipe requires the most ingredients out of the ones I have posted so far but the reward is definitely worth it.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

(makes 12 muffins)

100g Whitworths Walnut Pieces
1 medium orange, finely grated zest & juice
2 medium eggs
175g dark soft brown sugar
125ml sunflower oil
200g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
1tsp ground cinnamon
150g carrots, finely grated
100g sultanas (optional)
250g full fat soft cheese
100g unsalted butter, softened
75g icing sugar

Preheat your oven to 180°C/ Fan 160°C/ Gas Mark 4, then line a 12 cup muffin tin with cases.

Roughly chop the walnut pieces then set aside for baking and decorating.

Beat the eggs, brown sugar and oil together in a bowl then add 4 tablespoons juice of orange.

Sieve the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into the bowl then fold until evenly combined.

Stir in the carrot, sultanas and 85g walnuts (leaving 15g to decorate)

Spoon mixture between the cases then bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes. Leave to cool completely. 

Meanwhile beat the cream cheese, butter, icing sugar and zest of orange together until smooth. Using the back of a teaspoon swirl the frosting over the top of the muffins then decorate with the remaining walnut pieces.

Serve and enjoy!

Although mine don't look as pretty as I intended these have gone down a treat in my household. I didn't have a muffin tin which is why my muffins opened up so much but oh well, they taste just as good.
