Porkkanamuffineja - Carrot muffins


Blogiystävä Railan kanssa on tänä syksynä puhuttu kuivakakuista ja muffineista. (Kaikkien jouluihmisten kannattaa muuten tutustua Railan kauniiseen ja tunnelmalliseen Joulukuusen juurella -blogiin!) Railan leipomissa porkkanamuffineissa on mausteina kanelia, kardemummaa ja neilikkaa. Seuraavaksi minäkin kokeilen joitain jouluisia mausteita.

Sunnuntaina leivottuihin muffineihin käytin K-Ruoan reseptiä. Mantelirouheen korvasin hasselpähkinärouheella, koska sitä sattui kotona olemaan. Muffineita tuli 18 eikä 12... ehkä mittaan ainekset aika suurpiirteisesti. :)

This year our carrot harvest was bigger than ever. :) Now we need to invent many new ways to use those carrots. Four of them went into these muffins, together with cinnamon and chopped hazelnuts. Cream cheese topping with a splash of lemon juice and sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts. I don't have a muffin tin but they came out rather well.

  1. We don't have carrot muffins today, Sara, but Miriam and I just had a coffee with a blueberry muffin. Muffins fresh out of the oven, of whatever kind, are just the thing for a cold blustery day.

  2. Sara, these carrot muffins look scrumptious. I love carrot cake, and Jess' mother-in-law makes one that is so moist and Yummy. I think the cream cheese frosting and chopped hazelnuts add something extra. Your photos make me want a muffin to go with my coffee. : )
    How wonderful that you have a carrot harvest.

  4. Näyttävät suussa sulavan meheviltä ja kannatan kotoisen porkkanan käyttöä mahdollisimman monissa herkuissa. Se on ihmeen monimakuinen. Hyviä herkkuhetkiä!

  10. What delicious muffins, Sara! I love cooking something with carrots as well. But I had no so big harvest as you had:-(
    Yesterday I cooked carrot cream soup (carrot, potato, onion, tomato, spicies) and it turned out very tasty that I didn't expect :-) Today carrot cream soup has been finished...oh!
    Nice photos, especially the next to last.

  13. Hej Sara!

    Har inte bakat på många år, någonstans på vägen förlorade jag intresset för bakning men det där ser ju jättegott ut Sara! När jag ser dina läckra bilder kan jag nästan känna doften av nybakade muffins!

    Kram och ät dem med andakt!
