MINI CARROT CAKE CUPS
Desserts
Contributed by: Dana Murdock
Ingredients:
  • 1 9 oz. box Jiffy yellow cake mix
  • 11â�„2 tsp. allspice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 TBS vegetable oil
  • 2 medium carrots
  • For filling and garnish:
  • 5 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3â�„4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1â�„2 cup whipped topping
  • Chocolate-covered walnuts for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 24 wells of mini muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine cake mix, allspice, egg and oil. Stir until ingredients are moistened. Mixture will be very thick. Grate carrots. Stir 3�4 cups grated carrots into mixture. Reserve the rest for garnish. Fill wells of muffin tins about 2�3 full with batter and bake 11-13 minutes.
Mix together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth; fold in whipped topping. Spoon mixture into resealable plastic bag and set aside.
While cakes are still warm, press into the center of each cake with something round to make a well. Allow cakes to cool completely before removing from pan.
Trim a small corner of the plastic bag and pipe cream cheese mixture from it into cake wells. Garnish with remaining shredded carrots and walnuts.
