Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Carrot Cake Muffin works really well with Cream Sherry, Port Wine, and Moscato d'Asti. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. One wine you could try is NV Solera Cream Sherry. It has 4.5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 17 dollars.

NV Solera Cream Sherry

The Solera Cream Sherry has a brilliant amber and deep copper hue. With butterscotch and pecan aromas, the sweet salted nut and brown spice aromas carry a complex caramel accent. A sweet entry leads to a rounded, lush, moderately full-bodied palate with a lengthy, flavorful finish.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray oil on two regular-size 12-cup muffin tins or two large 6-cup muffin tins. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, ground flax, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. Make a small well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the honey, eggs, vanilla and applesauce. Stir the ingredients together until just combined and there are still some spots of flour remaining. Fold in the shredded carrots and cranberries just until combined (don't over mix or the muffins will be dense). Distribute the batter evenly among the muffin tin cups and sprinkle some oats on top. Bake for 20-24 min for large muffins (mine came out perfect at about 23 min) or 18-20 min. for regular-size muffins, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely, Enjoy right away or make extra to freeze for a quick snack!
