INGREDIENTS: 

For the Pumpkin Donuts :

  • 1 cup plus 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree – (I made my own by just chopping the pumpkin into small pieces, boiling it in some water for 15 minutes, then puree’ing it with a blender. – You can easily buy the canned ready made version as well.)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (Don’t worry if you don’t have almond milk, i like it for the taste, but regular whole milk works just as good!)
  • For the Cinnamon sugar coating:
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon

For the Pumpkin Spice sugar coating : 

METHOD:  

  1. Preheat oven to 175C.
  2. Generously grease a doughnut pan with some butter & set aside.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together the pumpkin puree, melted butter, and milk. Gently fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture – don’t over mix!
  4. Spoon (or pipe) the mixture into prepared doughnut pan, and bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the doughnuts spring back when lightly pressed. Allow doughnuts to cool a few minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire wrack to cool for a few more minutes.
  5. In the meantime, melt the butter for the pumpkin spice sugar coating; set aside. Mix the sugar and pumpkin spice mix together in a medium-sized bowl; set aside.
  6. Once the donuts are cool enough to handle, dip them in the melted butter, then roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture; repeat until all donuts have been covered.
  7. These donuts are best eaten the day they are made.

ENJOY!
