2 carrots 1 cup(cake)

It’s time! It’s time! After what feels like an eternity I finally decided to bake some cupcakes again! This is actually a recipe that I’ve never tried before, even though it’s not that special or difficult to do, I guess. When I wrote down all the ingredients before I went grocery shopping, I kind of overlooked the number of how many cupcakes you could make from this dough. It was not the usual 12 pieces but 24! So if you don’t want you whole fridge filled with cupcake, divide all numbers down below in half! But on the other side, who doesn’t want their fridge being filled with cupcakes??
