Baked Carrot Cake Doughnuts with Vanilla and Strawberry Cream Cheese Glaze 

Hello, delicious! This recipe was whipped up by Andrea of @sweet.in.nature for Easter, but we're pretty sure these sunny treats would bless any brunch spread, all year round. We love taking advantage of sweet spring carrots and switching up the frosting to have strawberry and traditional glaze options.
