Pumpkin Donuts

We got so hungry for pumpkin donuts, but we didn’t want baked donuts. We wanted old fashioned deep fried pumpkin donuts!

So I scoured through my recipes and found one for plain ‘cake’ donuts. But they weren’t pumpkin. So I jiggled the recipe around and came up with my own.

They weren’t as big or thick as you buy in the store or donut shop, but they were delicious. It was the taste we were hungry for!
