Ok so I was sort of expecting a carrot cake batter (read: lots of ingredients, very sweet and maybe a bit complicated) in muffin form but these really are more like an easy, light carrot-cake-like muffin and not too sweet at all!
Flour, milk, eggs and vanilla along with some less common ingredients like pomegranate molasses (which I happen to have from a previous Dorie recipe LOL but which I normally would never ad to a recipe like this!) and some dried fruit (cranberries and a topping of sunflower seeds – I used sliced almonds as I had some needing to be used up). Simple to make and bake and these made the house smell SO good! I should have halved the recipe and made only 6 as I ate WAY too many of these in the last week of school before March Break. Neighbours also enjoyed these. Leftovers were good sliced, toasted and lightly buttered!
Really enjoyed these – a simple, delicious recipe that made a nice change!
