Ginger Carrot Cupcakes Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl combine the cake mix, milk and eggs. Beat for 30 seconds on medium and then beat on medium speed for 3 minutes.
  • Add the carrots, ginger and cinnamon. Beat on low just until the added ingredients are evenly mixed.
  • Use a spoon to fill 24 paper lined muffin cups with the batter. Distribute batter evenly between cups.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Note: Cupcakes will be light colored in comparison to traditional carrot cake.
  • Allow cupcakes to cool completely.
  • Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add whipped topping and powdered sugar, beat on low until creamy.
  • Spread frosting on top of cooled cupcakes.
  • Mix cinnamon and sugar together. Lightly sprinkle on top of the frosting on each cupcake.
