Recipe by Sandra Mihic

Ingredients

  • 2 C. all-purpose flour, (9 oz. / 250g)
  • 2 1/2 tsp. Clabber Girl® Baking Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. Clabber Girl® Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 C. brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 C. Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 1 Tbsp. Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3-4 medium carrots (140g/5 oz.), shredded
  • 3 oz. crushed pineapple
  • 4 oz. pineapple juice
  • 2 oz. pecans, chopped, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Spice Islands® Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Baker’s Joy® Non- Stick Baking Spray

 

Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 3/4 – 1 C. powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 tsp. milk

 

Garnish:

  • chopped pecans, or any other nut of your choice

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease donut pan using Baker’s Joy® Non- Stick Baking Spray.
  2. In a small, microwave-safe bowl, melt shortening in the microwave and set aside to slightly cool down.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. To flour add pumpkin pie spice.
  5. Add carrots, pecans, and crushed pineapple to flour mixture. Mix well to coat.
  6. In a large bowl, egg, vanilla extract, and slightly cooled melted shortening. Whisk until well-combined. Pour in pineapple syrup.
  7. Add dry ingredients to wet, and use a spoon to stir until just mixed.
  8. Transfer batter to a piping bag (or disposable plastic bag and cut off one of the corners) and pipe batter into the prepared donut pan, filling rings 3/4 of the way full—this mixture will make exactly 12 donuts.
  9. Bake for 13-15 minutes at 350˚F.
  10. Cool the donuts in the donut pan for about 5 minutes, then turn donuts out onto a cooking rack to cool completely before glazing.
  11. Make the glaze by combining all the ingredients then spreading evenly over each baked donut.
  12. You can add crushed pecans on top for extra texture.
