Chef Bryan Vietmeier makes these terrifically moist and carroty cupcakes for Seattle's Take 5 Urban Market. He suggests freezing the cupcakes before frosting to firm them up, preventing crumbs.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 cup  all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup finely shredded carrots from about 6 medium carrots
Cream Cheese Frosting

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350° and line 14 muffin cups with paper liners. Spray the liners with vegetable-oil spray.


In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the cinnamon, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the canola oil. Gradually beat in the sugar at medium-high speed and beat until thick, about 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla. Fold in the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula, then fold in the carrots.


Spoon the batter into the muffin cups and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcakes comes out clean. Let cool slightly, then transfer the cupcakes to the freezer to chill.


Fill a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain tip with the Cream Cheese Frosting. Pipe the frosting onto the carrot cupcakes and serve. Alternatively, use a knife to spread the frosting on the cupcakes and serve.

THE BEST CARROT CUPCAKE EVER...
This is an incredibly simple and simply delicious cupcake. I made these for a family holiday meal. After a first few bites everyone fell silent. Then came the "OMG's" and "wow, these are the best cupcakes I've ever eaten." I would agree. These cupcakes are moist with just the right amount of sweetness, and a wonderful texture. This has become a family favorite, holiday or not.
