Equipment

  • blender
  • oven

Ingredients

  • 3 cups carrots peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 TBSP pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 18 tsp Nutella
  • 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (or 1 stick)
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • Cadbury mini eggs optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a standard muffin pan with cupcake liners and set aside.   
  • In the cup of a kitchen blender, blend carrots, oil, melted butter, 1 tbsp vanilla, salt, eggs, flour, and baking powder until well combined. Make sure to run a spatula along the sides to mix flour well. If necessary, blend a little more until mixture is homogeneous.
  • Pour mixture into cupcake liners, filling 3/4 full. Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes our clean. While they are cooling down, prepare cream cheese frosting.
  • In the bowl of a mixer, combine softened cream cheese and butter, powdered sugar, and 1 tbsp vanilla. Beat until homogeneous, creamy, and smooth (without lumps). 
  • Place frosting into a piping bag and reserve. Once carrot cupcakes are cool, make a hole in the center using a melon ball or teaspoon. Fill each with 1 tsp Nutella. Then, top cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and garnish with Cadbury eggs, or as desired.
