  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Carrot Cake Muffins Recipe
  • Heat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and put paper liners in a muffin tin.
  • Mix grated carrots, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger in a big bowl. Mix well.
  • Whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • Slowly add the wet and dry ingredients, stirring gently until mixed. Refrain from mixing too much, or the muffins can become heavy.
  • Add crushed pineapple and nuts (if using). Pineapple adds moisture, and nuts give a nice crunch.
  • Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes clean. Keep an eye on them to avoid overbaking.
  • Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5 minutes before cooling them on a wire rack.
  • If you like, put a bit of cream cheese frosting on top of the cooled muffins for an extra treat.

 Why do SGEats suggest keeping Eggs at room temperature? for Carrot Cake Muffins Recipe 

Bringing eggs to room temperature before using them in recipes helps them mix better with other ingredients. Cold eggs can cause some ingredients, like butter, to solidify, making it harder to achieve a uniform mixture. When beaten, room temperature eggs also trap more air, contributing to lighter and fluffier baked goods.
