Easy Pumpkin Donuts

Unbelievably easy recipe ! Pumpkin Donuts are Fall sweet treat favorites (Recipe for homemade Pumpkin Spice also given)

These easy Pumpkin Donuts are dense and slightly chewy. The perfect light Fall dessert, snack or tea time treat, and any leftovers keep well in a sealed container for around 3 days. Might be longer, but my family munches through a batch in no time at all.

This is one of the quickest throw together donut recipes I have ever tried, and now make them regularly. The mini donuts look so pretty on a sweet party platter too, therefore I try to include them whenever I am in the mood for a Pumpkin sweet treat.

It takes me about 10 minutes to whip up these oh, so, pie-spicy, mini donuts.  Since I bought the mini Donut Maker, I use it so often, it has a permanent counter space. The Donut Maker has seven holes and I bake (or is it cook?) 6 batches, which gives us 42 treats to enjoy.

Every now and then when we have family and friends over, I would simply double the recipe, which is more than enough for about 20 people. As part of a platter, a single batch would do just fine for 20 people.

This same recipe, if making larger Donuts, in the oven, would take much longer, I would guess another 30 minutes plus.  We like small bite size treats, anyway, so I hardly ever bother to bake Donuts in the oven.

I am not sure whether Pumpkin Pie Spice is available at our local supermarkets - maybe specialized baking stores, though.

Recently I browsed around on the internet and found lots of recipes for homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mixes, which were all more or less the same.

I am sharing something similar after the Donut recipe for any of you who also have a problem finding the spice, or had simply run out.

Just look at that bite ! Loaded with Pumpkin and of course Pumpkin spice - a heavenly Fall treat, either for dessert, tea time or pop a couple into the kids' lunch boxes.
