Today is round two of making tomato sauce with my family, and it’s been a long time tradition to bring coffee and donuts for the occasion! This time, I decided to try making some donuts, or donut holes rather, and I must admit, they are TO DIE FOR! Seriously, give these pumpkin spice donut holes a try. They are moist, soft, sweet, delicious, *drooling* excuse me.
These were gone within minutes, no joke!!
Okay, so pumpkin spice donut holes. Since I don’t typically like to fry (in the interest of keeping things healthy). Nor do I have a donut hole pan, I had to improvise. Instead, I used mini muffin trays. I filled them about half way so the size would be close to the size of a donut hole. The result, AMAZING! Quite possibly the best dessert I’ve ever made. Try these, seriously.
I try to make my recipes as simple as possible. In this case, I use canned pumpkin puree to save the time and hassle of carving into a pumpkin. But feel free to use a fresh pumpkin if that’s your preference. To prepare you batter, combine your dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls first. Then mix all together using a whisk. You will have a somewhat sticky batter.
Fill your mini muffin trays about half way full. Then bake and glaze! YUM, just look at that coating.
I really had to restrain myself from eating more than 1 before I made it to my mom’s house for our annual tomato sauce making. Okay fine, I had way more than 1!
Enjoy these donuts with a fresh pot of coffee in the morning, or as an after dinner treat! If you can wait until then. My best advice is don’t even try them if your intent is to share. 🙂
