What you will need

1large bowl and 1 smaller bowl

2 spoons

2 baking dishes( for 12 large muffins 3 for small) or 12 top 18 muffin moulds (see the bottom of recipe for details)


If you wish to use this as a savoury accoumpaniment to an indian meal for example, I would reccommend removing the suguar from the recipe and adding a pinch more of salt to taste.

preheat the oven to 200oC or 390oF adjust your oven accordingly if it is fan assisted or commercial

Combine all dry ingredients topgether in the large bowl.

Mix wet ingredients separately in smaller bowl along with the with carrots and raisins.

Add wet to dry, stirring only until flour is moistened.

Spoon the mix onto a greased baking dish (allow room for growth) or into muffin moulds

place in the pre heated oven and bake for approximately 15 mins ( check after 10 minutes to see that the timing is correct).

Simple as that

the mixture should make about 16 to 18 small carrot muffins  or 12 large muffins
