My son is almost 4 years old, and he loves baking with me. We have been baking together since he was old enough to sit up by himself. I would put him on top of the kitchen counter and we would make a mess together.

Well, we still do.

You only need 15 minutes to prepare these donuts. And the baking time can be as low as 10 minutes if you have a large donut pan. I only have one donut pan that fits 6 donuts, so I had to bake in two batches. But if you have 2 pans, or a large pan that fits 12 donuts, you can make the donuts and bake them in less than 30 minutes!

Please wait for them to cool down to put the glaze on top. They cool down pretty quickly though, and you can even eat a fluffy donut fresh out of the oven while you wait, because how can you resist, right?

Start by mixing all of the ingredients in a bowl. I like to measure out the dry ingredients and combine them in a bowl. Then pour the wet ingredients on top, and mix together with the carrots, and raisins.

You don’t have to use any raisins. Initially I was going to make these donuts without raisins, and hadn’t even thought about adding them. And then my son said: How about we add some raisins to the donuts?

Then, of course we did!

Feel free to add nuts, chocolate chips, or any other fun ingredients you have in your pantry.

To make the glaze, it’s very easy. Simply mix the condensed milk with lemon juice. The lemon juice won’t give the glaze a really lemony taste, but it will help the condensed milk set and get thick, providing a nice glaze for our Carrot Cake Donuts.

Then of course we chose to top our donuts with sprinkles. You can leave your plain, or top them with chopped nuts, or anything else that comes to mind.

These Carrot Cake Donuts are a super fun recipe to make, and can be made with ingredients you probably already have at home.

We used Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk, because that is a pantry staple for us. It’s my favorite condensed milk, which I am sure you are aware of, if you have been reading my blog posts.
