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.
