Carrot Cake Muffins with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting
Serve these tender carrot cake muffins as cupcakes with the honey-cream cheese frosting below or as muffins without any frosting. If you are dairy-free or vegan, then you can use my Sweet Potato Buttercream Frosting recipe. If you don’t have orange juice, are sensitive to citrus, then replace the ½ cup of orange juice with ½ cup of organic apple juice and omit the orange zest. I’ve made them both ways and they are delicious! The frosting recipe makes enough to generously frost one dozen cupcakes or muffins, with a little extra leftover. For a delicious variation, try omitting the orange zest and replace it with ½ to 1 teaspoon raw vanilla powder for a lovely vanilla cream cheese frosting!
