Carrot Cake Ingredients:
1 package Spiced Cake mix
1 cup Belfonte Vitamin D Milk
2/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup applesauce
2 cups grated carrots
1/4 cup golden raisins
Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups Belfonte Heavy Whipping Cream
1 package cream cheese (8oz)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup granulated sugar
For the Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 325* (350* for glass or non-coated pans). Line muffin tins with cupcake liners. In mixer, combine cake mix, eggs, melted butter and Belfonte Vitamin D Milk until gently combined. Then at medium speed, mix for 2 minutes. Add applesauce, then mix until well incorporated. Fold in grated carrots and golden raisins. Pour into cupcake liners, about 1/4 cup of mix in each. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool completely on cooling racks.
For the Frosting: In a chilled mixing bowl, whip the Belfonte Heavy Whipping Cream for 1-2 minutes until stiff peaks form. Remove from mixer into another bowl and set aside. In the mixer, beat the cold cream cheese on high for 1 minute and then gradually add the vanilla and sugar. Beat until smooth. Add in the Whipped Cream to the cream cheese mixture and whip together for 30 seconds to a minute until well combined. Spread frosting on the cooled cupcakes or pipe through a bag. Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator for best results.
