Recipe Ingredients for Gingered Carrot Muffins

1 1/2 cups white flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups grated carrot
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/4 cup orange juice
2/3 cup soy milk
1 teaspoon fresh ginger

Recipe Directions for Gingered Carrot Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grate about 5-6 carrots, using the regular-sized hole on a box-type cheese grater. You don't have to peel them, unless you would like to. Set aside.

  2. To grate the ginger, first use a spoon to scrape off the peel (a tip I learned via The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook - thanks, Jaden! - much easier than using a vegetable peeler) and then grate with a microplane grater until you have a fine pulp. Set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the sugars, eggs, vanilla, orange zest and juice, milk, and ginger until well combined. Stir in the melted butter.

  4. In a large bowl, stir together the white and wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix to combine well.

  5. Add the grated carrot to the flour mixture and stir to coat and evenly distribute. Make a well in the center of the flour and carrot mixture. Pour in the liquid mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir until combined and moistened. Do not over mix.

  6. Line muffin cups with paper liners. Divide the batter evenly among cups; I used a scant 1/4 cup per muffin. Bake on the middle rack until the muffins are golden brown, and the top of the muffins bounce back when you press on them -- about 20 to 30 minutes.

  7. Set on a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Remove the muffins from the tin and let them cool another 10 minutes (if you can wait that long!).
