Pure Bliss Autumn Doughnuts Recipe @pinch

Oh boy, we can see why Nadine's kids request these doughnuts. They are warm and tender, with a cake havelike texture. The doughnut itself has a hint of pumpkin flavor and isn't overly sweet. The sugar and pumpkin spice mixture they are coating in adds just the right amount of spice and sweetness. Serve for breakfast or dessert alongside a cup of coffee for a yummy fall treat. As soon as the leaves begin to fall, my kids are all requesting these wonderful doughnuts. They are more of a cake doughnut with a light sweetness and wonderful autumn spices. Eat warm. Any leftovers? Re haveheat in the microwave for 10 seconds. YUMMMMM!
