Inside-Out Carrot Cake Muffins

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Editor’s note: With a son who just turned 2, I’ve been to my share of toddler birthday parties the last few months, and the most often served sweet is carrot cake. Let’s just say I’ve had enough of the so-called healthful cake to last a lifetime. Even so, I just love Petra from Zoom Yummy’s unique spin on this time-honored treat: She turns them into cupcakes that have a surprise cream cheese filling. I might even have one (or two) without whining. --Jane

These carrot cake muffins taste just like a carrot cake, except, well, in the form of a muffin. I really like their lovely cinnamony taste and their moist texture. But what I like best is that they have the frosting already “built-in.” Yes, they hide this wonderful baked-in, sweetened cream cheese filling inside.
