More About This Recipe

  • These donuts are baked, not fried, so they're easier than ever.

    There is one thing that has completely changed my life for the better, and that thing is a donut pan.

    Okay, okay, I guess marrying my husband and having my family counts, too, but ALSO – donut pan.

    Why? Because I can make things like Carrot Cake Donuts with Pineapple Cream Cheese Glaze, that’s why. And you’ll need a donut pan to make them, too. But trust me, it’s worth it. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

    Here’s all the goodness you need to make these here donuts (besides a donut pan). Betty makes a mean carrot cake mix, so we’re going to add that magic, plus some Bisquick, milk, sugar, eggs and salt. The frosting comes in later, don’t worry!

    Mix the donut ingredients in a large bowl until well-combined. Easy so far.

    Pour the batter evenly among two doughnut pans (unless you have one of those fancy ones that makes 12 at a time, in which case you only need one. Lucky you). Bake the donuts until they spring back when lightly touched. Still easy!

    Let them cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely. Okay, it's a little difficult not to eat them already, but still, easy-peasy.

    When the donuts are fully cooled, drizzle them with a glaze made of cream cheese frosting mixed with pineapple juice. I could drink this stuff. Maybe I even did. You’ll never know...

    Sprinkle the tops of the donuts with chopped walnuts, too, if that’s whatcha fancy.

    Boom! Easy, tasty, life-changing carrot cake donuts, in yo’ face.
