Spooky Carrot cupcakes

Happy Halloween everyone! =)

In order to celebrate Halloween and getting my sweet tooth fix on, I had to bake another round of cupcakes today! No, it's not containing pumpkin this time.. but carrots! :D 

I turned to Isa Chandra's wonderful Vegan Cupcakes take over the world
and found the perfect recipe!
Since I grated a bit too many carrots, I doubled the recipe and just altered a few ingredients a bit.
I only got 18 cupcakes out of everything though, not as one would think 24.. Maybe the cupcakes are supposed to be smaller than I make mine.. either way, they taste great! Moist and fluffy!

Instead of re-posting the recipe, I can simply tell you that a Google search led me to this site Carrot Cake Cupcakes  (in case you don't have the book -which I'd really recommend to get! ;-) ).

The frosting was leftover from the cookies last week. Look here =)
It worked perfectly and the kids were happy to see more Halloween-ish colors, of course!

The eyeballs weren't vegan but used for my son's sake, so me and my girl just picked ours off and gave them to him! ;-) [Weren't so many left anyway! *lol*]

Modifications to the original recipe:

~* Spooky Carrot Cupcakes *~
 18 servings

*2 c of carrots (instead of 1c )
*1/2 c soft Silken tofu instead of soy yogurt
*a bit less than 1/3 c of coconut oil (instead of vegetable oil)
*1 c vegan sugar [2/3 white, 1/3 brown]
*1 1/4 c all purpose flour, unbleached

The rest stays unmodified! ;-)



  1. Thanks, Farrah! :)
    I only saw your other comment about the cookies yesterday, I'm sorry I didn't respond to that!
    I promise, I'll blog about some typical German cookies as well next month! :D

  2. These look so yummy!! I'm going to check my library for Isa's books (although I really enjoy your modifications!)

    HAPPY WORLD VEGAN DAY my friend!!


  3. Thank you, Christine! :)

    Happy World Vegan Day to you too!!! ;-)

  4. Soooooo Spooky with those eyeballs!
