Pumpkin doughnuts.

I always bake pumpkin doughnuts around this time of year. It's simple and we really enjoy them with warm apple cider. My four year old helps me in the kitchen. I really enjoy this time. We bake, talk and laughter fills the room. -Baking pumpkin doughnuts and making sweet memories. - This is definitely a moment worth cherishing. 

Maybe you'll enjoy this simple recipe with your family...

Baked pumpkin doughnuts.

You will need:

1 doughnut pan
non stick baking spray or oil to grease your pan.

Dry ingredients:
1 cup of flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup of light brown sugar
optional- a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon

Wet ingredients:
1 egg
1/3 cup of pumpkin puree
1/4 cup of milk

1/3 cup of confectioners sugar
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of milk (or as needed)
Caramel syrup 

Combine and mix dry ingredients in mixing bowl.  Add in wet ingredients and gently mix. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare a doughnut pan by spraying some non stick spray. I used an olive oil spray. Add your doughnut mixture to a sandwich bag and cut off one corner of your bag.- This will make it easier to fill your doughnut pan. Once you are finished, place your doughnuts in the oven and bake for 9-10 minutes. Now you can start preparing your glaze. Add in confectioners sugar, cinnamon and milk. Once out of the oven, spread some glaze and drizzle with caramel syrup.
