  • 3 cups carrots peeled and coarsely chopped
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil

  • In the cup of a kitchen blender, blend carrots, oil, melted butter, 1 tablespoon 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 ¾ 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 tablespoon vanilla. Beat until homogeneous, creamy, and smooth (without lumps).
