Toddler Meal # 17

Posted by Kero at Wednesday, September 09, 2009
Time for another toddler meal and a recipe as well. It's been awhile since i shared one so i will include in this post. My own lil' way of thanking fellow Mommies who enjoyed my Toddler Meal posts :)

Andreas had rice and scrambled egg for breakfast so I am giving this for lunch.

That is my tropical carrot cupcake, yoghurt, and washed them down with water. The family's cupcake is special for kids because it uses more carrots than flour. This is what i've always searched for in a carrot cake recipe. I added pineapple for a surprise and walnuts for protein. Sometimes, when I have cream cheese, i slather some on top. But since the meal comes with a yoghurt, i decided to skip the frosting.

Tropical Carrot Cupcake
(Makes 12)

60 g toasted walnuts
140 g pineapple tidbits
100 g brown sugar
120 ml vegetable oil
90 g flour
pinch of salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
330 g grated carrots
cream cheese (optional)

Here's how

1. Pre-heat oven to 150 degrees C. Grease 12-case muffin pan.
2. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and thoroughly mix. I use egg beater to do this.
3. Crack eggs and add to the flour mix, pour in vegetable oil and vanilla essence. Using a wooden spoon, combine ingredients.
4. Fold in carrots. Dust a little flour to pineapple and walnuts. Fold them to the flour and carrot mixture.
5. Divide the mixture to the muffin cases. Bake for 20- 35 minutes until browned and springy to touch.
6. Completely cool before frosting.

Happy Cooking!
