These pumpkin donuts are as light and fluffy as a bakery donut! I love eating mine with Nutella on top, but they are fantastic with only a simple glaze.
This year I’ve been enjoying the lighter side of pumpkin. And, no… when I say “lighter,” I don’t mean less calories. I mean literally lighter. As in yeasty!
Now, I love a moist and dense pumpkin muffin/cake/cookie as much as the next guy. In fact, I’ll probably be posting some of those recipe in the coming weeks. But I LOVE fluffy, soft pumpkin yeast breads and pastries.
Some people complain that you lose the pumpkin taste when it’s diluted with the amount of flour these recipes call for. But I’ve found that using a hefty amount of pumpkin pie spice (absolutely no skimping!) and serving it with something sweet (like a glaze or frosting) creates a deliciousness that has plenty of pumpkin and spice flavors!
So far, our yeasty pumpkin treats list has included:
and Pumpkin Monkey Bread (ok, so this one was from last year).
I’ve loved each and every one of these babies! And I think donuts just fit right in, don’t you?
….you know what else fits right in?? Nutella. Obviously.
Yes, that’s right. Go ahead and give your Pumpkin Donut a happy, healthy schmearing of good ol’ Nutella!
Eat up, and enjoy :)
Don’t miss a bite!
