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
- In a bowl combine flour, brown sugar, coconut, pecans, raisins, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add the carrots.
- In another bowl combine the milk, oil, vanilla and egg. Add to the four mixture; stir until just blended.
- 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 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons freshly brewed; strong coffee
- Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl, until smooth. Add more coffee to thin the glaze or alternately, add more sugar to thicken.
- Dip the muffins into the glaze or spoon it on top, let set.
