For some reason the Fall means donuts and cheesecakes to my family. So when pass that orange donut place all you hear from the back of the car is “donuts.” I’ve fried up donuts holes before. Talk about a dish all people from all around the world love. But I’m not a big fan of frying. Standing over hot grease at a stove is not my idea of a good time. So these Homemade Baked Pumpkin Donut Holes has been a long time coming.
These donut holes are all my littles fault. I was telling my friend that other day, that I’m pretty sure one of my littles told me he would pee on the potty for donuts. So what the heck. If donuts can end our months long journey with potty training I am all for it.
But seriously, It’s a great time of year to play with pumpkin recipes. Whether it’s Coconut Pumpkin Curry soup or lasagna with a pumpkin sauce, why not add a delicious pumpkin donut recipe to your collection.
Not only are these Homemade Baked Pumpkin Donut Holes perfect for a Fall get together it will also be a hit at a Halloween party. If you really want to dress it up, forget the cinnamon sugar coating and frost it. Just melt down some store bought vanilla frosting and drizzle it over your donut holes. The result is a delicious, warm, sweet bit of pumpkin. Yum!!
And just in case you were wondering, my little DID NOT pee on the potty for donuts. But hey we all indulged in a great Fall treat.
