Carrot Cake Muffins With Cream Cheese Filling1

Another Day, another beautiful morning has come, I love mornings, I cant say that enough but I really do because I get to have breakfast with my Hubby and I get to have my morning cup of coffee. Most people are not morning people but I am one of the few who greets the day with open arms and a good attitude and well a good breakfast. Cake, yes I can say cake because I love cake and any excuse to have cake is always a good excuse and what better way to start the day with having a cake for breakfast, Yup I had cake for breakfast on Sunday morning and all of this week with my Carrot Cake Muffins. I always loved carrot cake, but sometimes carrot cake comes with fillings that I just don’t care for like raisins, walnuts and cranberries, I dont like any of those in my carrot cake so I made my own with none of these ingredients, instead I opted for a cream cheese filling,  Cake with cream cheese filling I think is a match made in carrot cake heaven,  with some warm spices like cinnamon, ginger, a pinch of all spice and nutmeg this carrot cake muffing is top of the line with goodness, spices to warm your morning hearts with the side of coffee and off course our main attraction Carrots. This carrot cake is officially my one and only favorite carrot cake. I love it My Hubby Loves it and hopefully you will love it to.
