Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Cakes, Desserts, Spring

I’m not gonna front, these carrot cupcakes are THIS carrot sheet cake recipe in cupcake form. A lot of people have asked me “can I make this sheet cake into cupcakes?” The answer is absolutely! It’s as simple as making the batter and putting it into cupcake liners.

But listen, I know that might sound more than easy but sometimes we have to see it in its transformed state in order to actually be inspired to make it you know?

Here they are transformed!

These cupcakes are so delicious and if you want something sort of bite-sized for your brunch situation, then these are it for you! I love carrot cake. It is divine. And it’s always been incredibly high on my list of things to make when the weather starts to get a bit nicer. I love the bits of carrot, crunchy walnuts and large quick bread-like crumb.

10 Cozy Things to Make for Easter

Adventures

I completely forgot to post a ’10 Cozy Things to Make in April’! WHAA! I don’t get where my brain was but it wasn’t working apparently. Easter is next weekend so I figured I’d skip to what you should make for Easter vs. April.

TBH I don’t even know what I’m doing for Easter. Josh is throwing a pop-up and I’ve promised to be the hostess and make the flower arrangements. I’m guessing I’ll be totally exhausted and will most likely wanna stay in bed. We shall see!

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls – But I also might make a batch of these rolls the day before and bake them up the morning of so who knows!

Conchas – SOOO many of you made these conchas and I love seeing everyone’s iterations, with the different toppings.

Instant Pot Lamb Shank – I made this last year and it was so delicious. The Instant Pot is a true time-saver and the chipotle sauce is something I make all the time.

Cappuccino-Flavored Rose Cupcakes – These cupcakes are so delicious. White fluffy cake and mocha-flavored cake layered together to make the perfect “cappuccino.”

Strawberry Sheet Cake with Rhubarb Frosting – One of the most popular recipes on A Cozy Kitchen for good reason; the strong strawberry flavor paired with the pink fluffy cake is a winner every time.

Very Good Blueberry Muffins – These muffins are so simple but just perfect. Feel free to make the batter the night before!

Carrot Sheet Cake with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting – This carrot cake for a crowd is so perfect.

Smoked Gouda Black Pepper Biscuits – I love these biscuits. They are so delicious. The gouda gives them such a good flavor.

Strawberry & Cream Cookies – One of the most classic combinations, these cookies are chewy, filled with freeze-dried strawberries and white chocolate.

Cadbury Mini Eggs Skillet Cookie – Do you have extra Cadbury Mini Eggs lying around? Of course you do. Put them in this skillet cookie.

Lemon Berry Meringue Trifle

Desserts, Quick and Easy, Spring

This is the first ever trifle I’ve ever made! Some of you will probably be shocked, appalled, stunned. And the other half of you probably don’t know what a trifle is. Don’t worry, I will explain.

In my extensive trifle internet research I read that trifles are very much English. And they do very much remind me of an eton’s mess. But just on a grander, larger scale, which I am very into. Especially since we’re in the thick of spring, which means Easter, brunches and gatherings.

For this post, I teamed up with Pyrex and their new line of Pyrex Deep baking dishes. I love Pyrex so much and use their products daily. Their Deep line is extra special because it is up to 50% deeper – meaning you can fit even more pasta (for pasta bakes), a bigger roast (for Easter) and even more layers (for trifles).

I also love that they all come with super secure lids so you can take to your friends’ and families’ houses and you don’t have to worry about spillage.
