Cooking with Bellamy - Evelyn's Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Cupcakes are good.  We like them.  They make us happy.

Bellamy loves carrot cake, and here she is showing you how to whip them up.


First things first, grate your carrots.

   It's a known fact that making an absolutely ridiculous face helps this process immensely.

Get those eggs cracking.  Fingers are the best method of egg white removal.

Get those eggs in the bowl, along with the sugar. Mix it up real good.  Add in the oil and mix that up too. Throw in the carrots and stir it up.

Now add in the flour and everything else. Mix mix mix.

Line your cupcake pan, being sure each one is meticulously pushed down.

Then leave your mom in the kitchen by herself.  Peace out mom, Mr. Bean is on.

You're so much cooler than me Mr. Bean.

Fill the cups 3/4 full and bake for 20-25 minutes or until they test clean.

Yay cake!

Top them off with 7 minute frosting and you're all set.

Evelyn's Carrot Cake

4 Eggs
3 dl (1 1/4 Cup) Sugar
3 dl (1 1/4 Cup) Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla Sugar (or 1/2 t vanilla extract)
4 Carrots, grated
Bit less than 3/4 C Oil

Preheat oven to 375F/190C

Combine eggs and sugar.  Beat well.  Add in oil and beat to combine. Stir in carrots.

Combine remaining ingredients, add to carrot mix and beat to combine.
Line muffin pan and fill 3/4 full.  Bake 20 - 25 minutes.  Cool completely.

Seven Minute Frosting 

2 Egg Whites
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Put egg whites and salt in a bowl, beat with a hand help mixer or in a stand mixer until it's frothy and at forms soft peaks.
Combine remaining ingredients in a pan, bring to a boil stirring occasionally.  Once boiling, remove from heat and VERY SLOWLY stream into egg whites while beating constantly.  Continue beating for 5-7 minutes until thick and shiny and it holds stiff peaks.  Spread or pipe on to cupcakes.
