I unabashedly love "pumpkin season." As soon as it's an acceptable time to bake with pumpkins and apples, I become even more excited about baking than usual. And that's saying a lot!
I was about to bake and post about my favorite pumpkin bread...until I realized that I already did! So instead of the bread, I made these delicious doughnut holes. I used the same spice combination as the bread, so they pretty much covered my craving for the bread...and then some. I kind of can't stop eating them.
They're baked in mini muffin tins, so as doughnuts go, they're pretty easy to make! And they're covered in cinnamon and sugar,..they're soft and rich and pumpkin-spicy...they have that cake-like texture of apple cider doughnuts that you'd get at an orchard. They may be competing for my new favorite pumpkin recipe. Have I sold you on them yet?? I hope so!
