These doughnuts are a spicy/sweet combination that are moist and quite decadent. They are not overly sweet and so you can enjoy them as a dessert or have them for breakfast. The carrots and ginger pair nicely together and the addition of cinnamon and maple syrup make these doughnuts a paradise of flavor.
