How to make Eggless Carrot Cupcake Recipe with Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. To begin making the Carrot Cupcake recipe, we will first preheat the oven to 175 C. Line 12 standard muffin cups or 20 mini muffin cups with paper cupcake liners.

  2. Sift together the flours, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Keep aside.

To make the flax meal Egg Replacer 
  1. If your recipe asks for 2 eggs, measure 2 tablespoons of flax meal along with 6 tablespoons of water. Stir well and let the mixture rest for about 15 minutes. This process of resting helps the flax meal mixture develop a gelatinous consistency similar to eggs.

To make the Batter 
  1. In a large bowl or the bowl of the stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the brown sugar, oil and flax meal egg replacer)until well combined and fluffy.

  2. Once the mixture is fluffy, add in the carrots and vanilla essence. Add the flour mixture and beat until well combined. Finally stir in the slivered almonds.

  3. Spoon the carrot cupcake batter among the muffin cavities. Fill the muffin cups only to little more than the 1/2 its mark.  Bake the carrot cupcakes in the preheated oven for about 12 to 15 minutes, until a tester like a knife or toothpick when inserted into the center comes out clean.

  4. Once the cupcakes are baked, remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely.

  5. Our next step is to proceed to make the cream cheese frosting for the carrot cupcakes.

  6. Now using the whisk attachment of the stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar and zest together until smooth and fluffy. 

  7. Once the cup cakes have cooled completely, frost them with the above cream cheese frosting and optionally top with more slivered almonds. You can store the cup cakes with and with out frosting refrigerator for at least 4 to 5 days.
