These carrot cupcakes are somewhat unconventional—it has cocoa mixed in with the batter. This unusual combination is simply divine. The chocolate flavor is not overwhelming but you will know it’s there. There is also a hint of cinnamon. These cupcakes are incredibly moist and it’s not because of vegetable oil which is the usual fat used in carrot cakes. I do not like vegetable oil so much in my cakes except when making chiffon cakes because oil is an essential ingredient. I prefer using butter because baked goods just taste better. Although unsaturated fat such as oil is healthier as opposed to saturated fat (butter), all fats still contain calories. Bottom line: consume fatty foods in moderation!
