carrot-muffins
I made these muffins a long time back, but saved for posting this time when I am on vacation as I knew I would be short of posts. I really loved the simplicity of this recipe when I saw this here in this blog. It was tasty, healthy with no maida – with carrots and wheat flour and no butter, only oil so lower in fat too. What else we need. I had these myself for snack without any guilt. You can also try this for your family for their snack and sure they are going to love this. Its been a long long time since I posted any baking recipes, so this one is perfect to break the break, stay tuned for more eggless baking recipes! I am enjoying my vacation at mom’s place and I really sorry, could not respond to the flowing mails and comments. Soon will respond to all you queries!

Eggless carrot muffins recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Snack
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 18 mins    |  Makes: 8

Ingredients

Wheat flour / Atta - 1 & 1/4 cup

Curd / plain yogurt - 1 cup

Grated carrot - 3/4 cup

Sugar - 3/4 cup

Oil - 1/4 cup + 2tblsp

Baking powder - 1 tsp

Baking soda (Sodium bi carbonate) - 1/2 tsp

Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp

Salt - A pinch


Method

  1. Gather all the things required to the counter top. Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Mean while wash, peel and grate carrots. Keep aside. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. This is to ensure even mixing.
  2. 1-grate-carrots
  3. In another mixing bowl, using a whisk mix well curd and oil.
  4. 2-wet-ingredients
  5. Add sugar, vanilla and mix until it is dissolved.
  6. 3-mix-sugar
  7. Add the sifted flour mixture (dry ingredients) and mix gently. Do not over mix.
  8. 4-mix-flour
  9. Lastly add carrots and fold (mix gently) the mixture so that carrot is mixed with the batter.
  10. 5-mix-carrot
  11. Line a muffin tray with muffin liner (I use two for better looks) and pour batter until 3/4 th of it. Make sure to spoon equal amount of the batter in all the muffin liners.Bake for 15- 18  minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Cool over a wire rack before storing. Keeps good at room temperature for 2 days.
  12. 6-baked

Notes

  • Any cooking oil can be used, I used sunflower oil. Other than this, Canola, olive oil or vegetable oil is recommended.
  • Do not over mix after you add the dry ingredients.
  • Bake immediately once you prepare the batter.

Soft, tasty, healthy muffins, perfect for breakfast or for your kids snack box or as kids evening snack.

  26. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I tried these over the weekend and they turned out delicious. While I was making these, I noticed my dough was not as runny as yours. The moment I added the flour, it became a thick mass. Tried adding more oil, but it still wasn't runny, so I ended up adding a cup of milk. Without the milk, the dough wouldn't be mixable at all. Any idea what could have gone wrong? Luckily, despite the little mishap, the muffins turned out yummy and were enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

  47. For the first time this recipe gave me confidence to bake more. I m a beginner in baking. However it didn't cook in the middle. I set 170deg n baked for 15 mins but the top turned crisp. It was soft and except middle others were cooked. Tried it again cookies as well. Guess my oven temperature s too high. Plz advice

  48. Hi I love your recipes. I have tried it today but my batter was not as runny as yours so added more curd. It didn't come as spongy as its in your pic. Wat should be the reason?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Next time use plain water to dilute rather than extra curd

      Delete
  49. Hi... Made these muffins today..... Yummy.... A total gastronomic pleasure.... I tweaked the recipe a bit though... Add half n half of jaggery and sugar instead of just sugar... Muffins turned out yummmm also added around 2tbsp of milk to get proper cake batter consistency

  52. Thanks for the recipe. Muffins were fantastic. Can you tell me where in Singapore can I buy a muffin tray which holds small cupcake liners as small as 6cm approx. Since the cups are small mayby a muffin tray which can bake around 24 cakes simultaneously.

    1. You can check in ISETAN, mustafa, Robinsons, BHG kind of shops.

    2. Thanks a lot.
      Can I bake cupcakes without a muffin tray. By placing cupcake liners directly on the tray in my oven.

      Delete
  53. It wont hold the shape, so you need a muffin tray or atleast a stiff muffin liner with rim.
