Carrot-Ginger Cupcake. A root vegetable combo of goodness.
Long live the root vegetable! You so rock. Ginger is a great root. And so is the carrot - such a great color. Other fun root veggies include: The Wasabi (have you had freshly grated wasabi? So delicious, hot and spicy!), The Beet (I adore the rainbow and yellow beet), and The Potato (especially the Yam).
So, anyway, I found a recipe that has two of my favorite roots. The Carrot-Ginger Cupcake!
I made the Carrot-Ginger Cupcake from the Martha Stewart Baking Handbook (page 166). The cupcakes include organic carrots and one tablespoon of freshly grated ginger.
The ginger with the cream cheese is really lovely! I topped them with a few pieces of orange zest. This is definitely my favorite carrot cake cupcake recipe!
