How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Put sugar, butter, carrots, raisins, salt, spices, and 1 1/3 cups water in a medium saucepan. Heat over high heat, stirring occasionally, just until mixture comes to a boil.

Step 2

Whisk flours, baking powder, and baking soda together in a medium bowl. Pour in warm carrot mixture. Stir to combine, but do not overmix.

Step 3

Spoon mixture into greased muffin cups.

Step 4

Bake until browned and a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Let cool on a rack.

Step 5

Blend cream cheese with zest and serve with muffins.
