Carrot Muffins with Coffee-Cinnamon Glaze

Carrot cake is one of my favorites, in this recipe you’ll find carrots mixed with coconut, raisins and walnuts.

The muffins are then dipped in a glaze, studded with cinnamon and flavored with freshly brewed strong coffee.

Breakfast or snack, the multipurpose muffin!


* Preheat oven to 375 degrees

* Line a 12 cup standard muffin tin with paper liners, or butter 36 mini trays

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup brown sugar                  1 1/2 cups grated carrots

1/2 cup shredded coconut           2/3 cup milk

1/2 cup pecans; chopped            1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup raisins                          1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 Tbs. baking powder                 1 egg

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

  1. In a bowl combine flour, brown sugar, coconut, pecans, raisins, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add the carrots.
  2. In another bowl combine the milk, oil, vanilla and egg. Add to the four mixture; stir until just blended.
  3. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins, dividing them evenly. Bake for 40-45 minutes. (Less time 20-30 minutes if you are using mini muffin tins) Let cool completely on wire racks.

Prepare the glaze:

1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

1 teaspoon cinnamon

4 tablespoons freshly brewed; strong coffee

  1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl, until smooth. Add more coffee to thin the glaze or alternately, add more sugar to thicken.
  2. Dip the muffins into the glaze or spoon it on top, let set.
