This mini carrot cake Thermomix recipe creates deliciously moist carrot cake muffins with the most amazing cream cheese frosting.
These carrot cake cupcakes will make you love your Thermomix even more than you probably already do!
It is so quick to make this easy carrot cake recipe in the Thermomix, and as the cake batter is quite runny, you can just pour it directly into the cupcake cases.
And the cream cheese carrot cake icing is to die for! I have to stop myself from eating it all straight out of the bowl before I have piped it onto the cupcakes!

Making mini carrot cupcakes
Make sure you have your oven pre-heated before you make these yummy carrot cake muffins, because the cake batter is so quick to make in the Thermomix.
First you need to grate the carrot in the Thermomix, which takes just 10 seconds.
Then add the all the wet ingredients and mix for another 10 seconds.
Then add the dry ingredients and mix for another 10 seconds, and you’re all done in just a few minutes!
Make sure you allow your cupcakes to cool completely before you try to add the frosting to them.
Making carrot cake frosting
This is the best bit! SO yummy! And SO easy to make.
You literally just put all your ingredients into the Thermomix and mix for 30 seconds.
For the best results you should use a piping bag to frost your carrot cupcakes. I like to use the Wilton 1A round tip to do mine. It is super quick and easy to use.
Then sprinkle with a little cinnamon and you’re done!
Top tip: If you want to pack these in a lunchbox or for a picnic. Scoop out the top of the cupcake with a spoon, squeeze in some icing and then replace the top of the cupcake. This will stop the icing from making a big old mess.
