Try the barefoot contessa's recipe. I have tried it and it is wonderful. It has been so long since i have made it that I cant remember if it bakes up in domes. When you do bake it, set your oven to 400. I usually keep my oven at the temp and bake for 12 to 14 mintues.

I love "Barefoot Contessa" carrot cupcakes, it's the only recipe I use for carrot cake cupcakes.

I just made them recently and they did dome ever so slightly.

I think they are just too moist to get a real dome.
