I tried this Carrot Almond Cinnamon Muffins which made my day!
The muffins also doubled up as Nabeel's Christmas Tiffin Treat. I was happy to find an empty tiffin box when he returned from school; they managed to please Nabeel too :-)
1. ¾ cup castor sugar
2. ½ cup oil
3. 2 eggs
4. 1 cup refined wheat flour
5. 2 teaspoon cinnamon powder (if you want a subtle cinnamon flavour add only 1 teaspoon)
6. ½ teaspoon baking powder
7. ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
8. ¼ teaspoon salt
9. 1.5 cups finely grated carrots
10. ¼ cup almond slivers
Step 1: In a dry vessel beat sugar, oil and eggs at a medium speed till the mixture appears frothy.
Step 2: Add vanilla essence, flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder and salt. Beat lightly just to mix the ingredients well. DONOT overbeat.
Step 3: Add in the carrots and almonds and fold the batter lightly.
Step 4: Pour the batter in muffin tray and bake @ 160 for 20 to 25 minutes.
