Purple Carrot Cakes June 24, 2011

There are such things as purple carrots!  Not easy to find in supermarkets, but if you manage to find some, they release their colour wonderfully in foods.  These cupcakes were made from a normal buttercake recipe, with a grated purple carrot added – and they turned a lovely blue colour and don’t really taste any different to a normal cake (why blue, rather than purple, I’m not sure, probably because the cakemix is slightly alkali maybe?)  You can try adding some cinnamon to the mix too.
