Classic Carrot Cupcakes

The Story:
         I love putting crazy flavor combinations together and trying new things, but sometimes, all I want is something classic.  Carrot cake has always been a favorite of mine.  It’s hearty, has texture, it’s difficult to make dry, and it is always covered in cream cheese butterceam.  This has no gimmicks or tricks, just a simple, classic cupcake. 
Classic Carrot Cake
4 eggs
¾ cup oil
½ cup applesauce
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
½ cup crushed pineapple, drained
2 ½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
3 cups grated carrots
Cream Cheese Buttercream
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
3-4 cups powdered sugar
1-2 teaspoons milk
Directions:
1.     Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcakes liners (yields 24-28).
2.    Gently combine eggs, oil, applesauce and vanilla.
3.    Stir in brown sugar and sugar for 3 minutes.  Add pineapple.
4.    In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger. 
5.    Add dry ingredients to oils/sugars and stir only until combined. 
6.   Add grated carrots and stir until evenly mixed.
7.    Fill cupcake liners ¾ full and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until an inserted knife or toothpick comes out clean.
8.   Buttercream: beat butter and cream cheese for at least 4 minutes. Add vanilla and powdered sugar. Mix well.  Add milk a teaspoon at a time until it reaches your desired consistency.
9.   Pipe onto cooled cupcakes. (I used piping tip 1M from Wilton)
