How To Make Carrot Cake Donuts

To make these baked carrot cake donuts, I used 6 cavity donut pan, you will also need a donut pan. You can find non-stick or silicone pan on Amazon or stainless steel pan on USA Pan.

To prepare these baked donuts, I combined all the dry ingredients, gluten-free flour, cane sugar, baking powder, and salt.

For baking powder, I used Pillsbury Gluten-Free Flour and for the cane sugar, I used Sugar In The Raw.

For the liquid, I combined almond milk, flax seeds, coconut oil, and vanilla. I then fold in finely grated carrots and crystallized ginger. For the crystallized ginger, I used the Trader Joe's brand.

    What a great twist on the traditional carrot cake! I love that you topped them with ginger. Ginger has such a fabulous aroma, and pairs so well with carrots

    Just last week when we were driving back from our vacation, we saw carrot cake donuts in one of the convenience store as a packaged snack. My absolutely loved it but I was not happy about all the not so needed ingredients in the donuts. Looking at yours, I am going to make it for the boys. The flavors are so fresh and I love the ginger powder and ginger crystals.

    You had me at Carrot Cake Donuts – ginger just made it even better! They sound wonderful. (I may have to break down and get a donut pan, one of these days…)

    WOW…I love baking donuts. These sound wonderful, and even though I do not need to make gluten free things, I still do. In fact I just had some GF bread for breakfast. I would eat these for breakfast too.
