Easy Carrot Cake Muffins


Pinterest came through again with a easy and delicious recipe that was just what I was looking for.  My friend had to spend the night in the hospital and I wanted to drop off a little something to help her feel better. Muffins or banana bread are my go to for something like this, and I chose this recipe for two reasons.  I know she loves carrot cake and anything with carrot as the main ingredient is perfect for the Easter season.



Carrot Cake can be dry and muffins had the potential to be even drier, but I knew the addition of crushed pineapple would help with that.  And, cake mix recipes are the best if you want easy.

This recipe took minutes to put together and I couldn’t resist trying one before I packed them up.  A dollop of cream cheese frosting was the perfect amount of sweetness.  These are a winner, either at Easter time or really all spring and summer.  Find the original pin here.

Enjoy!

    1. Grew up in a small town and still have those roots (simple cooking) even though I moved on to big cities and a different life. It never leaves you.
