Easy Carrot Cake Donuts

 Now that we have sprung forward, the days seem to be getting longer,
but so do my list of things to do.  From this time of year until the end of the school year...craziness!
So, here's an easy (almost a cheater's way) to make mini donuts for the season.

Easy Carrot Cake Donuts

They are "cheaters" because you start with a cake mix!
Believe me, no one will know except for you and me.  This information will stay top secret!
Besides, I know you are crazy busy too, so starting with a cake mix will save you time but not sacrifice the deliciousness of these little gems.  Perfect for Easter don't ya think?

These carrot cake donuts are topped with a cream cheese icing and toasted coconut!
Seriously Peter Rabbit worthy!

Ingredients to make 3 dozen mini donuts:
1 yellow cake mix
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup sweetened coconut
non-stick spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly spray a mini donut pan with nonstick spray.  Mix together the yellow cake mix, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, water, oil and eggs.  Once well combined, stir in the shredded carrots.  Pour into prepared donut pan (about 1/2 way) and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
Place coconut in a shallow baking pan.  Place in oven and toast for 3-4 minutes.
Ingredients for cream cheese icing:
3 oz cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
4 Tbsp half and half
Beat together cream cheese and sugar.  Add half and half.  Mix well.  Dip top half of cooled donuts into icing and sprinkle with toasted coconut.

A little bit of spice with bits of shredded carrots make this a mighty tasty breakfast!
Easter or anytime of the year!

  1. Thanks to Doctor Razor for the Great miraculous work he did in my life with his herbal remedy. I have been living with this virus and I have shared with my partners my situation because they deserve to have a choice of whether they want to change being with me or not. I unfortunately did not have a choice in this matter leaving me vulnerable and now faced with this virus for the rest of my life or until a cure was discovered.I refused to take the Medical drugs my PCD had told me to take, I surrendered to my fate, because I was careless. On Aug 23, 2020, I came across Doctor Razor herbal medicine. I browsed about the authenticity of This Doctor, I got to see several Testimonies regarding his works from people he had helped with his medicine. I reached out to him and told him my problems, after we spoke he promised to help me out. I started using his herbal medicine which he sent to me Via the Courier Delivery, and asked me to take the herbal medicine for 18 days. which i did. I am delighted to let you all know that I Got cured of Herpes Virus, after the Medical Doctor had confirmed this with the test results, when I went for a medical check up after completing the Herbal Dosage Of 18 days.
