Carrot Cake Doughnuts

Makes 7

Who doesn't love a good doughnut? These were such a hit on the blog, so I'm really happy to put this recipe back up! I used to absolutely love eating doughnuts along the seafront on a warm summer's evening. As there's a lot of science behind the baking of doughnut, I found them pretty tricky to recreate using alternative ingredients. But these carrot cake doughnuts, with their mix of carrot, spices and juicy raisins, are absolutely delicious! Drizzled with the pecan and maple sauce, they make such a dreamy dessert.
