As Christmas looms over us there is nothing more satisfying than having your home having an aroma simmering through. The smells of mulled wine and the gentle spices would remind anyone of Christmas.
Carrot cake is one of our family favourites and even better is mulled wine and those lovely spices in a muffin.
Here they are Christmas carrot cake muffins. The gentle softness of the carrot cake infused with mulled wine and with an addition of cranberry heighten the crunch of the walnuts. Toped with cinnamon cheese frosting these really are little Christmas bites to be shared by everyone along with a warm glass of mulled wine on the side, for the adults of course.
