Inside Out Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Mini carrot cakes bursting with cream cheese frosting - which is undeniably the best part! 


Yields 12 Servings
Cream Cheese Filling
  • 8 oz. package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 pinch salt
Carrot Cake
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. Firebee Cinnamon Honey
  • 1/2 c. oil
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 lb. carrots - grated (1 1/2 - 2 cups)
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a muffin tin with liners. 

Grate the carrots on a box grater and then set aside.

Step 2

In a medium sized bowl, add all of the cream cheese filling ingredients and whisk to blend until perfectly smooth. Set aside.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the sugar, Firebee Cinnamon Honey, oil, eggs, and vanilla together until blended and then stir in carrots and salt.

Step 4

Sit the flour and baking soda on top of the wet ingredients and gently fold until completely blended.

Step 5

Add about 2 tablespoons of the carrot cake batter into the bottom of each muffin liner. Then, drop one heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese filling directly onto the center of the batter. (You won't use all the cream cheese mixture at this point)

Step 6

Use the remaining cake batter to fill each muffin to within about 1/4 inch from the top. (Enough to cover the cream cheese filling)

Step 7

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the sides of the muffins are firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and cool them on a rack for about 10 minutes. Use the remaining cream cheese filling as your frosting. Serve at room temperature and enjoy!
