These Easy Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts are delicious and moist donuts! Loaded with tons of fall flavors and sprinkled with Halloween fun.
Halloween is just a week away! We already started to decorate our home, bought some candy for the kids, and of course, costumes are ready.
However, we are facing a little problem!
Vicky is scared of Halloween! I meant Halloween decorations. It makes perfect sense to me that a child might get scared around Halloween time. With all ghosts, monsters, zombies and all sorts of spooky things, it’s no wonder why my little princess gets frightened by what she sees and hears.
That is why we are making our celebration about fall, rather than frights. Hopefully, she will eventually see that Halloween it’s more fun than spooky.
I’m sure my boy would have loved decorating these donuts with spiders or bats; instead, we used cute pumpkins and sprinkles.
Am I the only one feeling the pumpkin pressure?
I know it’s pumpkin season, and I personally feel the need to showcase the pumpkin in every single recipe I prepare and make it the star of the show. With the time I have learned to adore the taste of everything pumpkin so it’s not a big sacrifice LOL.
These donuts are baked! So to me, that makes them healthy…right?
Well, healthy or not they are delicious.
They are so incredibly moist and soft and they are loaded with delicious pumpkin flavor. I enjoyed eating them with a cup of coffee. And the best part is that making these donuts at home couldn’t be easier. You simply need a Donut Pan. I have a couple of them and I use them quite a bit. I got mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond for less than $10 – a pretty smart investment, especially if you love to bake as much as I do.
