Carrot Cupcakes

Since I was a kid and upto now that am 34, I really hate carrots! Even if it’s cooked in a viand like Mechado or Curry.  What my sis-in-law (Bro’s wife) would do before is to grate it and mix it in fried rice, lumpiang shanghai or anywhere she can mix it with so just we can eat it.

For so long, I really never tried eating carrot cakes since I thought it has that distinctive taste.  I was already dating Dino when I first tried carrot cakes.  Hmmm.. If I remember it right, I think it was Leah’s favorite that’s why I tried it.  They have it at home so I tried and wow! it was delish!! 🙂

I decided to give this a try after I read Maqui’s post.  I did not exactly copied her recipe, since I want to use my pecan nuts that’s been sitting in our ref for a few months now.  So I settle down with the one I got from Real Simple.  Everybody liked it.  Even Leah gave it a two thumbs up. 🙂
