Carrot Cake Muffins (Gluten Free)

Submitted by: ERIKA05

Introduction

My go-to dessert when entertaining friends with gluten allergies or intolerances. Check confectioner's sugar and spices for any added gluten (not usual, but done sometimes as a filler), but otherwise bake away!

Ingredients

    Canola oil, 1 cup
    Egg, fresh, 4 large
    Lentil flour 2 cups
    Carrots, raw, 4 cup, grated
    Brown Sugar, 2 cup, packed
    Baking Soda, 2 tsp
    Baking Powder, 0.5 tsp
    Salt, 1 tsp
    Apricots, dried, 0.5 cup, chopped

    Cream Cheese Icing:
    Cream Cheese, 1 cup
    Butter, salted, 0.25 cup
    Vanilla extract, 0.5 tbsp
    Half and Half Cream, 3 fl oz
    Icing Sugar (Confectioners sugar), 1.5 cup

Directions

Makes 16-18 small cupcakes, lightly iced.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs until thoroughly beaten. Whisk in sugar and beat thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Beat dry ingredients into wet. Add carrots and apricots, stirring until well mixed. Portion equally into paper-lined muffin trays and bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into centre comes out clean.

For cream cheese icing, allow cream cheese and butter to sit until soft. Using hand blender, whip cream cheese and butter, gradually adding icing sugar and cream in alternating fractions. Whip on low speed until smooth.

Allow cakes to cool before frosting with 1 dollop (~1 tbsp) of frosting per cake. Extra frosting can be frozen.
