Moist and fluffy chai spiced carrot cake cupcakes topped with brown sugar cream cheese frosting perfect for Spring celebrations!

Spring is finally here and its Easter Long Weekend so we couldn’t resist making carrot cake! Carrot cake is something we usually eat in spring. These cupcakes are totally irresistible and easy to make. Beats making an entire cake!

The rich chai spices complement the carrot cake so well, the spices accentuate the natural carrot flavor and the sweetness from the brown sugar cream cheese frosting is the perfect complement to the rich spice from the carrot cake.

These cupcakes are made with freshly grated carrots, Greek yogurt, crushed pecans, tons of spices like ground cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, ground ginger and all spice. The frosting is not your typical cream cheese frosting, the brown sugar adds a rich depth of flavor.
