BWD: Big Bill’s Carrot Cupcakes

Pretty?  No.  Amazingly delicious?  Yes!  I opted to cut the recipe in half and make cupcakes as I knew a big three layer cake would go to waste in our house.  I LOVED these, although next time (because there will most certainly be a next time), I will make the cake rather than the cupcakes.  The cupcakes turned out wonderfully, but they sunk in the middle and poofed out on the sides, making a pretty icing job a bit difficult.  The cake is chalk full of carrots, coconut and walnuts (should have raisins too…forgot to buy them at the store!), and is so moist and flavorful.  The cream cheese icing was the best I’ve ever had…the hint of lemon flavor really took it over the edge.

To get the recipe for this fantastic cake, check out Rebecca’s blog, beurrista.  You can also find it on page 254 of Dorie’s Baking: From My Home to Yours.  Thanks, Rebecca, for such a great pick!  Check out the BWD blogroll to see how everyone else enjoyed these.  Up next, Great Grains Muffins.  YUM!
