How to make carrot cupcakes with salted caramel?

Nothing is too complicated about this recipe.

Starting with cupcakes, you basically need to add dry ingredients and wet ingredients together and mix until just combined. My only tip would be to try and grate carrots on a rougher side of your grater not on a smallest one. I hope you know what I mean. It makes the difference in the texture of carrot cupcake.

Adding homemade salted caramel is the best part. I love my recipe for salted caramel! it is just the best and you need to check it out! It is smooth, thick and just heavenly, the consistency is just perfect to create this oozing effect when you bite into your cupcake. Moreover, it is very easy to make and requires only few ingredients.

The last but not least in popcorn. I used homemade popcorn but you can use shop-bought if you do not have access to homemade. Just mix popcorn with salted caramel and voila. Done.

What do carrot cupcakes with salted caramel taste like?

These cupcakes taste great! They are very light and airy and very moist. This is due to the right balance of wet and dry ingredients and a generous amount of juicy carrots. In addition to this, I would like to mention that you can not taste carrot at all. These cupcakes are filled with thick and smooth homemade salted caramel. After taking a bite, the caramel sauce is oozing from a cupcake and adds richness and a hint of saltiness. Lastly, caramel popcorn adds extra crunch and a wow effect.
