Easter is coming up and no matter how many chocolate eggs, pastel-colored candies and bunnies I see, I always associate this holiday with carrot cake.  I flash back to an Easter celebration party from when I was in elementary school.  While all of the other kids were outside scavenging for hidden eggs, I was inside, first in line for a slice of carrot cake.  First come, first serve!  And I wanted that corner piece.  You know, because it has the most frosting…  ehem.

The second I got that cake I sat down at a table, scraped all of the frosting off the cake and ate the frosting by the spoonful.  I didn’t care much for carrots as a kid (clearly), but I have grown to appreciate its flavor, its texture and its nutritional benefits.  Similar to how I have grown to love dark chocolate  🙂

  1. I always think of carrot cake around Easter too! And I’m a sucker for the frosting. This recipe looks delicious. I love how healthy it is! But I might make it a little less healthy by making a cream cheese frosting to top it. 🙂

  2. I can’t wait to try this for breakfast! I love all of your microwave cakes, and I make them all the time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  8. This recipe sounds really good. I don’t microwave anything anymore after I found out that the live enzymes and live nutrients are destroyed during microwaving. I got my info at beatcancer.org. I will increase the amounts and make a whole cake for the week. Thanks for your recipes.

  9. I think I just died and gone to heaven. This carrot cake muffin is to die for. I am going to have it for breakfast again tomorrow.
