Blender Carrot Muffins

Yesterday my husband came back from the grocery store with a 5lb bag of carrots. I asked him what I am supposed to do with that many carrots, he said “ you can make carrot halwa”. I knew that meant he wanted me to make the halwa. I ceded and made halwa using 5 big carrots. I still had a lot of carrots. I have been wanting to make this blended dump carrot cake for a long time. I decided to give it a try. Blender cake means the cake is make using a blender or mixie ( without using any other fancy gadgets). Dump cake means that the cake is made by dumping all the ingredients into one bowl and mixing them up. In this case we dump all the ingredients into the blender/mixie and mix them all up. You put it into a pan and bake them. I decided to make muffins instead of baking them into a cake. The result was these delicious looking golden beauties. My children finished them in half a day!!
Here is the easy recipe: 

Servings: makes 9 large muffins 


Carrot: 1 large peeled and chopped 
Eggs: 2 large 
Sugar: 1 cup 
Cooking oil: 1/2 cup ( I used coconut oil) 
Cinnamon powder: 1/2 tsp 
Flour: 1 & 1/2 cups
Baking powder: 1/2 tbsp 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
Grease/line the muffin pan and keep ready. 
In a blender add chopped carrots, eggs, sugar, oil, cinnamon powder and blend well. 
Add the flour little by little and pulse lightly until mixed. Do not over mix. Turn off the blender. Now stir in the baking powder. 
Pour into muffin pan until 3/4th full. 
Place on medium rack and bake for 11-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. 
Turn off oven, take the pan out and let it cook. 
Remove muffins from pan when completely cooled.
