Woohoo! So finally, Easter is coming soon in a few days. So technically it’s the beginning of the the Spring fest. 🙂 Even though it’s still not feeling like Spring on most of the days here, but I can surely tell that it’s getting warmer here day-by-day.

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Lemon Ricotta Frosting | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsEaster and carrot dishes are best friends. So I decided to share this tasty carrot recipe with you’all. And I so want to eat them now. All right, the thing is that I am craving for one of these stunners right now, but sadly they all vanished as soon as I made them last week.

We baked these sweet, cinnamony and nutty cupcakes last week. And then, when there was more batter left after baking one batch, Adoria suggested me to bake carrot cake brownies. So yeah, I did that, and the result was fabulous.

However, I somehow liked the fact that she ate and loved those cupcakes. At least that way, I could get her to eat more carrots, and I must say that the hiding fruits and veggies in a delicious way like this always works.

I don’t think that I need to tell you about the goodness of carrots in these cupcakes. But I still want to write something about these irresistibly fluffy, and moist carrot cake cupcakes.

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Lemon Ricotta Frosting | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsThese carrot cake cupcakes are super light and fluffy. Carrots add wonderful moistness to these cupcakes which also have a decent flavor of cinnamon. Nothing can go wrong when carrots and cinnamon are involved. Right? These cupcakes are a great way to eat a cake and a vegetable together. 🙂

And there is no butter. And believe me, no one can ever tell there is no butter in these. Here I used a simple ricotta frosting which I couldn’t record as video, but that frosting is super easy and I am sure, you won’t necessarily need video instructions for that. My baby girl and I love our cupcakes with frosting. Unlike the two of us, Daddy dear went for a simpler frosting free muffin.

So let’s get started.
