Carrot Muffins (Ultimate Recipe Swap: Baked Goods)

Ultimate Recipe Swap

This week on Good Cheap Eats, we’ve been discussing leavening agents.

FishMama say what?

What?! Leavening agents, you know. Baking soda, baking powder, yeast. These, coupled with flour, are the building blocks of baked goods. And you need to have these in your pantry at all times. Because baking is fun! Baking is economical! Baking tastes good!

Need I say more?

The Easter holiday is quickly approaching and with it come lots of opportunities for baking. I know this is true because the grocery store ads are featuring great prices on flour. So, it must be true. The sales say so. And whether you’re making hot cross buns or a delicious carrot cake, baked goods can really make a family event special.

Remember my all-purpose, mix and match muffins?

Well, I tweaked them to coordinate with the arrival of spring, turning them into Carrot Muffins with Honey Sweetened Cream Cheese. These are a great addition to any holiday breakfast. Yummy

What kind of baked goods will you be mixing up in the coming weeks?

  2. you’ll never guess what I used to turn the frosting on my brownies pink……

  3. Those muffins look so good! I love that there are no unusual ingredients! I will plan to make these soon for sure. I’ve started making my own yogurt in the crockpot and it’s nice to use in recipes like baked goods because they make the final result so moist and yummy!
    Thanks for the recipe!

  4. I entered my Ciabatta bread. It is great for sandwiches with that leftover ham:-)

  6. I’ve never tried honey sweetened cream cheese, I’ll have to try it!
