Last, but certainly not least, Jess is here to share a deliciously tasty treat with us.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Jess or her blog, please go check it out. She has the ability to make her readers laugh at each post she writes. I always know when I go to her blog, I’m going to leave with a smile on my face and a craving for creative baking! [She played a big role in the concept around pancake peach cobblers]
Take it away, Jess!
Hi everyone! I’m so psyched to be a part of Leanne’s guest post series while she’s out enjoying her time in Golden! Her blog is always on my “inspiration list,” and am honored to be sharing a recipe on the very blog I see so many wonderful ones on daily.
So, if there’s anything about me that you need to know…it’s probably that I have a problem.
It’s sort of a serious one.
I am a carrot cake freak. I may or may not have been bugs bunny in my past life.
Whether it’s carrotcakewaffles, carrotcakepancakes, carrotcakebakes, frenchtoast, carrotcakemuffins or even carrot cake smoothies – if I ever come up with a new base recipe there is almost a 100% chance that my next thought is “how do I carrotize this?”
Which is exactly what happened when I made (and became obsessed with) doughnut holes the other week.
My first rendition was blueberry, with the idea stemming from one of Sarena’s recipes.
Those blueberry doughnut holes quickly stole my heart. I kept them in a tupperware at the back of the fridge, safe from the eagle eyes of the rest of my family. Hey, I share sometimes. That counts enough, right?
But next? Next was good old carrots.
I’m not really sure that I’ve ever even seen a carrot cake doughnut before…but that just gives you something to strive for, Dunkin’ Donuts.
I keep mine in an airtight container in the fridge. They’re even better the next day! While they may not taste like the real carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, they’re a good enough replacement for me.
What’s your favorite cake or dessert flavor to mimic?
