how the pumpkin spice donut holes were created:

During high school, I worked at a donut shop that some of our family friends owned. Every Saturday, I would wake up around 5:00 am to make it to the shop by 6 am and serve donuts to happy morning people.
Seriously, waking up that early as a teenager was torture, but the amazing aroma of donuts definitely helped make it a little easier.
For the few years that I worked there, I basically ate a donut every day (I had to be able to tell the customers what they tasted like, right?).
After a couple of years, the aroma no longer smelled good to me and the thought of eating a donut just made me sick to my stomach.
Fast foward to today, it’s been over a decade since that fun job at the donut shop ended and my love of donuts has returned with a vengeance. I can’t get enough of them.
I love that these donuts are baked instead of fried. To be honest, I have never really fried anything in my life because the thought of being scalded by burning oil terrifies me.
I bake my chimichangas, I bake my churros, and now I bake my donuts.
The great thing about this recipe is that these little donut bites taste amazing and literally melt in your mouth.

Step 1: Preheat oven 350°F. Spray each cup in a 24-cup mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3: In a separate, large bowl whisk together oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and milk until smooth.

Step 4: Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined and do not over mix.
Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.

Step 5: Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Step 6: While the muffins bake, melt butter in one bowl and combine granulated sugar and cinnamon in another bowl.
Step 7: Remove muffins from oven and cool for about 5 minutes, or until just cool enough to handle. Dip each muffin in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon sugar to coat.
Step 8: These are delicious served warm or at room temperature.

  2. I can not wait to try these. I made some plain ones similar to these and they are delicious and my kiddos love them. Do you think these would freeze well with the sugar topping on them? I know when I froze some muffins with crumbly goodness on the top it got all mushy so I was thinking of freezing these, bringing them to room temp when ready to serve and then topping with the melted butter and sugar coating. I look forward to another wonderful recipe from the amazing Six Sisters :)
    • I made these for breakfast this morning and they are amazing! We gobbled them up faster than we should have. My 2 year old and (almost) 4 year old each had 4 of them! I made a double batch and used a whole can of pumpkin puree (15 oz.) so it was a little extra pumpkin. I also didn't have any allspice so I omitted that this time. I plan on freezing the second batch plain so we don't keep eating them this morning! My 4 year old already told me he wanted these again for breakfast tomorrow.
