Pumpkin Donuts

Pumpkin Donuts

Continuing with the fall theme, may I present to you, Pumpkin Donuts!

Soft cake donuts, brushed in butter and covered in a spiced sugar coating. What’s not to love?

These donuts pair perfectly with a morning cup of coffee.  Now I’m just waiting for that crisp cool fall air to move on in.

Pumpkin Donut Recipe 

2 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp all spice

1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp cloves

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/3 cup oil (I use a very light EVOO)

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/3 cup buttermilk

1 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup pumpkin puree

Spiced Sugar Coating

Melted butter

1 cup sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tbsp all spice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, spices, and salt. Mix well to evenly distribute spices.

In a large mixing bowl combine all wet ingredients, including the pumpkin puree and whisk thoroughly. Next, slowly whisk in dry ingredients until combined.

Fill donut pans about 3/4 full.  I used a large round frosting tip and piped it into the donut forms; It worked perfectly.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until the donuts spring back, just like a cupcake!

Let cool slightly and brush with the melted butter then dip them into the spiced sugar mixture. I think these could also be delicious drizzled with a salted caramel sauce instead.

Enjoy!
