How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • For my muffin tin I use "If You Care" baking cups - NOTHING sticks. Really. They are so worth getting - almost magic. I just pop them in the muffin tin. This recipe uses a standard size muffin tin (12 muffins) and the Large Size "If You Care" cups. If you don't want to use liners, grease the muffin tins lightly.
  • Mix together in large bowl the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and chopped pecans. Set aside.
  • Grate the carrots, and apple and add the orange juice and zest.
  • In a medium bowl stir the melted butter, eggs and vanilla till very well blended and add to grated carrots mixture.
  • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry till well incorporated but not over mixed. The batter will seem too thick and you'll be thinking - is this right? Don't worry, it is.
  • Divide the batter among the muffin tins. There should be enough to fill them almost even with the top. That's ok too.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes till toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire rack, not in the muffin tin otherwise moisture will condense between the tin and the muffin cup and it'll get soggy.
  • Enjoy.
