TWD Carrot Spice Muffins


Why I liked Carrot Spice Muffins
  • they contain carrots so I'm sure they are healthy
  • they contain oil, it is always the right temperature
  • they are easy to mix together, wet ingredients into dry ingredients
  • they contained 3 of my favorite ingredients, toasted pecans, coconut and dates
  • they had a perfect dome, something that doesn't happen very often
  • they were delicious
  • the recipe can be found on Nancy's blog, as well as many other great recipes and fun information
  • check the TWD blog roll, I often say, 'why didn't I think of that' when I see how others interpreted the recipe
  • purchase Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan, it has become my 'Baking Bible'

I love dates, what a great addition. I like baking with oil too, I don't have to worry about softening it, melting it, etc.

Anne said...

Your muffins do have the perfect dome and I too am always excited to see oil in a muffin recipe to save myself the softening/melted process. Great job, they look lovely!

Beautiful photos - love your pretty tops! :)

I prefer recipes with oil also - the baked goods stay so nice and moist. I can't believe how perfectly your muffins domed, and wow, I'll have to remember dates. That would be a great combination if I ever get to try them with coconut. Thanks for baking with me this week.

Oh, dates would have been a nice addition. Now why didn't I think of that... LOL

Jaime said...

wow yours rose up so nicely :) mine weren't as domed up but they were still enjoyed!

Katrina said...

That does look like a perfect dome. Anything with a vegetable has got to be healthy. ;)
