First of all gather all your ingredients before hand so you have no surprises :)
Shred you carrots
Turn your oven to 350*
Cream your butter and brown sugar
Measure the remaining 7 dry ingredients into a separate bowl and whisk to blend well and set aside.
Add honey to your butter mixture continue to cream a bit longer
Lower your speed and blend in your 4 eggs
Add vanilla extract
Add cuties plus zest (and/or mandarine oranges)
Add the dry mixture to the wet on a low mix speed, adding a half cup at a time until all in.
Scrape your bowl several times making sure to lossen any ingredients from the bottom.
Mix well but don't beat it up!
Gently fold in your carrots by half cup at a time. low mixer would be ok.
Add nuts if you are going to be using them.
Bake - I bake this in a rubberized bunt pan at 350 for around 40 min. Be sure to check for doneness at 30 min using a wooden toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean it's done.
Cool in pan for 10 min before turning it out onto wire and then to plate.
You can also make cup cakes filling your paper lined muffin pan 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 15 min or so.
I ice with cream cheese frosting while it's still slightly warm so it drizzles a little.
Cream Cheese Frosting-
Cream together softened butter and sugar
Add softened cream cheese and vanilla
whip until well blended.
I have only made this once so let me know suggestions so I can modify my notes if needed.
