Carrot and Apple Cupcakes


What do you do with leftover cream cheese frosting, an apple and two carrots? You make moist, delicious cupcakes just for the heck of it!


I was also getting to the bottom of a box of dried fruit, so I used it all. The fruit was mostly regular raisins but also included some dried cranberries and golden raisins. The cranberries sprinkled throughout gave a nice surprise tart taste.

I sprinkled nutmeg on top for the look and an extra hint of flavor.


This batch reminded me why I shouldn’t really make cupcakes for no reason. I don’t have an army to feed, just me and my husband! We ate many, but I gave some away and froze the rest to take the next time friends invite us over.
