Let's Have A Pumpkin Donut

There's nothing better than a warm donut, but if you're like me & not an early riser, then you probably will end up with a cold donut that has been sitting out for a while. So why not make your very own? I did today & I'm in pumpkin donut heaven.

Sundays at Country Chic Homes during the fall are for football (Go LA Rams!) & being all day in the kitchen making everyone's favorite dishes. Today was a little extra special; I made donuts for the first time. I timed it well enough to where I would have a warm donut with my hot morning coffee. They're super easy to make & since we're in the holiday baking season. You probably already have the ingredients in your pantry, so you're set to bake them. I have linked the pan that I used here, recipe makes for twelve donuts.

Ingredients for Donuts
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie puree

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/4 milk

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Donut Topping Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon or cinnamon sugar

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted.

Let's Bake The Donuts
  • Preheat oven to 350* F.

  • Grease donut pan.

  • In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder & soda, salt & pumpkin pie spice.

  • Combine pumpkin puree, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, butter, milk & vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Mix until blended & smooth.

  • Add & mix ingredients in the large bowl.

  • Spoon batter into donut pan; don't fill to the top; fill up to 3/4

  • Bake for about 10-15 minutes. Check by inserting a toothpick until it comes out clean.

  • Cool the donuts for about a minute or two, then remove them from the pan.

Donut Topping
  • Mix sugar & cinnamon in a pie pan (it works better than in a bowl)

  • Brush each donut with butter & roll in cinnamon sugar to coat.
