My Special Carrot Cake Using Maya Think Heart Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Mix

I decided to make cupcakes instead of the usual carrot cake due to less cooking time. They can be eaten without using fork or plate which means less dishes to wash! Lol!

(as seen on the packaging)

1 pack of Maya Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Mix 400g
1/3 cup vegetable oil (I prefer canola oil.)
1/2 cup water
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups grated carrots (loosely packed) approximately 17g

If you prefer baking...

1. Preheat oven to 350 F or 177 C.

2. Line 24 holes (2 ounces) muffin tin with baking cups.

3. Blend all ingredients.

4. Fill up muffin tins with 2 tablespoons of batter mixture.

5. Bake for 15-18 minutes until done.

6. Remove cupcakes from oven and cool. Decorate as desired.

For Oven Toaster: Line 2-ounce muffin tins with baking cups. Follow steps 3. Fill up muffin tins with two tablespoons of batter mixture. Cover muffin tins loosely with aluminum foil. Bake first batch in toaster oven for 10 minutes. Remove foil cover and bake for 2 more minutes to brown top. Cupcakes are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from muffin tins and cool. Bake the remaining batches as above.

If you prefer steaming like I usually do in preparing cakes...

1. Boil water in steamer.
2. Follow step 2.
 3. Follow step 3.

 4. Follow step 4.
5. Line top of steamer with cheesecloth. Cover steamer.
6. Steam cupcakes for 8-10 minutes or until done. Remove cupcakes from molders and cool. Steam the remaining batches as above.   


1 cup low fat cream cheese (I used the whole bar of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.)
1/2 cup sugar substitute (I used 1/4 cup refined white sugar instead.)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 2 tablespoons Starbucks Hazelnut Flavoured Syrup

1. Beat cream cheese until soft.

2. Mix in sugar and vanilla extract or Starbucks Hazelnut Flavoured Syrup and continue beating until smooth.
 3. Swirl on top of carrot cupcakes using the back of spoon.
 Best served when chilled! Serve plain or topped with candy sprinkles!
