Carrot-Cake-Donuts

One of the things I took with me from England is the unconditional love for black tea with milk, blueberry porridge and carrot cake! Carrot cake is very popular in England and quiet rightly, because it is an all-rounder. It fits every season and tastes great on every occasion. So far, I have not experienced anyone who would refuse a carrot cake. That’s why I created these wonderful and delicious carrot-cake-donuts.

Is it too early to think about Easter holiday? No, I don’t think so! And even if you are annoyed by the supermarkets showing their Easter bunnies everywhere, it’s time about thinking what to serve your family as an Easter menu. After all, this has to be tested and enjoyed in peace. Without any hustle and bustle.

One of the things I took with me from England is the unconditional love for black tea with milk, blueberry porridge and carrot cake! Carrot cake is very popular in England and quiet rightly, because it is an all-rounder. It fits every season and tastes great on every occasion. So far, I have not experienced anyone who would refuse a carrot cake. That’s why I created these wonderful and delicious carrot-cake-donuts.

I have adapted this recipe for our sensitive bellies, but of course without sacrificing the taste, because after all, our bellies deserve the best. The carrot-cake-donuts taste warm from the oven, but also served cold with frosting. Personally I prefer the frosting, as I found the combination of sweet-tasting carrots and coconut very convincing.

What makes the recipe so healthy? The carrots and buckwheat flour increase the fiber content, which is important for our intestinal health and in particular our intestinal activity. The carrots also provide vitamins and enhance the carrot cake donuts with other valuable nutrients. Because the donuts are baked, they are not as fatty as donuts from the supermarket or bakery.

Enjoy and share!

Frequently asked questions

I tried everything. But it is best not to eat at all. Do I take the strain off my gut?
In order to maintain an adequate supply of nutrients, to build up a rich microbiota as well as holistic health, a regular and symptom-oriented diet is necessary. The intestine and its great population need the right foods. Get a professional support along your way and always be patient. Exchange your ideas and wishes with your nutritionist. Or if you need some help, just don’t hesitate to contact me via the form.
I have no identified intolerances. Why do I still not tolerate fresh dairy products or fiber-rich foods?
Fresh dairy products contain higher levels of probiotics than usual, so they can briefly lead to lactose intolerance-like symptoms. The same is true for fiber-rich foods containing prebiotics. The intestine simply has to get used to the new population. Initially, you can relieve your stomach with a combination of vegetables and vegetable oils (such as linseed oil).
Cabbage, beans or fiber are bloating. Is there anything I can do against it?
A varied diet is important, including healthy fats. These relieve the intestine by ensuring that the food stays in the stomach for a longer time. Therefore always combine the meals with vegetable fats. But watch out – also the amount is important. Furthermore, frozen cabbage or beans are normally leading to less bloating.
