Sweet carrots, fragrant cinnamon and sugary frosting always make carrot cake a dessert star. But what if you could make a healthier carrot cake — and in doughnut form?

This fun and surprisingly simple carrot cake doughnut recipe, courtesy of Abington-born celebrity kosher chef Jamie Geller (publisher of JOYofKOSHER.com), bakes the doughnuts instead of frying, substitutes icing for cream-cheese frosting and recommends whole wheat flour for even healthier results. In a half-hour flat, you’ll have the perfect sweet to bring to your Shabbat dinner. For the recipe and an easy-to-follow video, click here. B’te-avon (bon appétit)!
