Carrot Cupcakes Thermomix

Carrot cupcakes Thermomix – These are my absolute favourite cake. Moist with a delicious mixed spice flavour and a lush cream cheese frosting. If I had to choose just one cake for the rest of my life I think it would be this one!

I know it’s a big call but carrot cake really is my favourite. When you try this recipe I am sure you will agree it is pretty special. This is a really moist carrot cake, fully of flavour and you can always make it nut-free if you would prefer.

What makes my Carrot Cake recipe special?

I’m so pleased you asked! Carrot cake is unique among cakes as it has completely different ingredients. Contains no white sugar or butter. No creaming ingredients together. Where’s the milk, yep, you guessed it, no milk!

PLUS! We get to really add some deliciousness with spices!


  • Brown sugar – more caramel flavour, not just sweet
  • Cinnamon – cosy spice
  • Ground Ginger – warming spice
  • Mixed Spice – YUM!
  • Coconut oil – makes cakes moist and soft and they stay moist and soft!
  • Cream Cheese frosting – Lush – with lemon zest – YUM – with Vanilla – OH YEAH!
  • Walnuts – I think a carrot cake needs the occasional nutty crunch (you can leave them out if you like)
  • Sultana – just a few make all the difference, they plump up in the cake and add another sweet burst

So the ingredients are what make my Carrot cupcakes special. Oh, and I use a decent amount of carrot, not a token bit of orange!

Carrot Cupcakes Thermomix or Conventional Method

You can make my carrot cupcake recipe in the Thermomix or using a conventional method and I will give the instructions for both. The Thermomix makes grating the carrots super quick, but other than that step, this recipe is really suitable for just a large bowl and a wooden spoon.

Conventional Method

  • Add oil, sugar and eggs to a large bowl. Whisk until combined.
  • Stir in spices, grated carrots, nuts and sultanas.
  • Add flour and bicarb soda and stir until combine
  • Cook as per the recipe

Cooking a Large Carrot Cake

Can this recipe be used to make a large carrot cake?

Yes! This is the perfect recipe for a large carrot cake. Simply double the recipe and cook the cake in a 23cm round cake tin. I like to use a springform tin lined with baking paper. The cake should be cooked at 180 degrees celsius.

Bake for 1 1/4 hours. Cover with aluminium foil halfway through cooking to prevent the top from becoming too dark. Please check your cake as ovens vary in temperature and heat distribution.

Thermomix Cakes – Have you tried these cakes yet?

Cakes are super easy to make in the Thermomix. One of my guilty pleasures is a sweet treat. I absolutely love cake with plenty of frosting. These Red Velvet Whoopie Pies have a deliciously creamy filling that squishes out when you take a bite. Double Choc Muffins are another treat you would usually find in a cafe. If you have been looking for a way to use all your Passionfruit Curd or Lemon Curd this Passionfruit Curd Cake is just the dessert you. It can be made with any flavour of curd. I would love for you to try some of these cakes and let me know what you think!

    Am I the only one who can’t see what temperature to set the oven at? I can see it’s 180C if making as a cake so I’ll assume it’s the same for cupcakes, but it’s not listed with the instructions in the version I’m viewing on iPhone. Cheers, looking forward to the taste test!
