Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Popular carrot cake flavor is packed into these moist muffins, which are sweet enough to double as breakfast or teatime treats or an after-dinner dessert. Ready-to-spread cream cheese frosting makes a tasty topping.
  • tip 2
    If you're grating carrots by hand, grate the fat end of the carrot first. The tender tip will be easier to grate when you're down to a nubbin. Or, the cook can munch it as a bonus.
