The sweetness of pineapple and carrot in every bite - these doughnuts remind you of the real carrot cake. Makes: 18 large doughnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Making the Doughnut Batter

  1. Mix the wet ingredients. In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter with a stand or hand mixer.
  2. Incorporate the yogurt, egg, and vanilla into the bowl.
  3. Add the pineapple and carrots last. Mix everything thoroughly.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients. Use a medium bowl to combine the cinnamon, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg with a metal wire whisk.
  5. Incorporate the two bowls. Sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient bowl.
    • For the best results and easier stirring, sift a small amount at a time between stirring.

Baking the Doughnuts

  1. Fill a doughnut pan. Add the batter to the cavities of the pan, about ½ full.
  2. Bake the doughnuts for 10 minutes.
  3. Allow the doughnuts to cool. Leave them in the pan for a few minutes.
  4. Transfer the doughnuts to a wire cooling rack. Set aside for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Making and Applying the Frosting

  1. Combine the frosting ingredients together (except the walnuts). In a small bowl, use a metal wire whisk to whip everything thoroughly until you achieve a smooth mixture.
  2. Dip the doughnuts into the frosting.
  3. Garnish the doughnuts. Before the frosting sets, sprinkle some chopped walnuts around.
