Ingredients:
  • All Purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
  • Shredded carrot - 1 cup
  • Dried Cranberries- 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup
  • Light brown sugar- 1/3 cup
  • Half and half - 1/3 cup
  • Butter - 4 tbsp or 1/2 stick, softened
  • Ground Cinnamon - 1 tsp
  • Ground Anise - 1/2 tsp
  • Cloves - 4 powdered
  • Plain Yogurt - 2 tbsp
  • Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp

How to make it:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, light brown sugar, cinnamon,anise, cloves, baking powder and salt) together. In another bowl, mix the softened butter, half and half and yogurt. Add this to the flour mixture and beat on low speed for 2 minutes, until it becomes smooth and creamy, without any lumps. Now toss in the carrots and cranberries and beat for another one minute. Pour into the baking cups until half and bake for about 30 minutes or until done ( a toothpick inserted inside should come out clean).

These carrot flavoured muffins goes to FIC: Orange, hosted by Aparna.
