They sound fabulous don't they!
Trust me, they are. And they're good for you! - Carrots! Oats!! Mmmmm.
We made these with that wonderful doughnut maker that I won on Chickens in the Road. Remember....
It made wonderful brownies!
But I was hungry for carrot cake.
And cream cheese frosting.
Mostly the frosting.
I'm sure you understand.
I'll get right to the point. Here's the recipe:
Carrot Cake Doughnuts [or muffins, or cake or whatever.]
Plug in the doughnut maker.
- 1 1/2 cups grated carrot
- 1 1/2 cups ground whole oats/oatmeal [No, you don't have to grind them. This is America.]
- 1/4 cup water
When the carrots are soft enough for you, add:
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup oil
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup flour
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp salt
- dash nutmeg
|Ready to come out!|
Bake doughnuts for 6 minutes. Take them out and let them cool a bit. Glaze when warm. Or not. Whatever you want. I glazed them when they were very very warm so the glaze would melt all over and get gooey. This is the glaze I made:
Cream Cheese Glaze
- 1/2 block of cream cheese
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- a few drops of milk - only if necessary
