Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts

Before November is completely over, and we've all moved on to Christmas, I wanted to blog about some pumpkin doughnuts I made a few weeks ago.  I had seen the recipe here, and I wanted to try them, but I didn't have a doughnut pan.  I looked at doughnut pans at Target, but they were kind of expensive.  I knew that I wouldn't be baking doughnuts very often, and I didn't want to put a lot of money into doughnut pans, so I decided to wait and see if I could find one at the thrift store.  On my next thrift store trip, I found a doughnut pan for just a couple of dollars, so I bought it, washed it up, and tried the recipe!
 We all really enjoyed these doughnuts!  They are very soft inside, and the spices made them so tasty!  I ended up making one pan of them on a Saturday morning, storing the rest of the dough in the fridge overnight, and making the rest of the doughnuts on Sunday morning.  The dough did great, and the Sunday doughnuts tasted just as good as the Saturday doughnuts.
 Drew loved them!
 Maddie had a few pinches of the insides of the doughnuts, too.  She likes to hang out by my feet while I cook, which is cute, but sometimes a bit dangerous.
Drew and I have been trying to decide what kind of doughnuts we want to make next, and I keep checking the thrift store for a second doughnut pan.  I will let you know if we find another doughnut recipe that we like, and you will have to let me know if you have a good doughnut recipe or if you try these pumpkin doughnuts!

I have wondered how good those baked doughnuts would be. I'm glad you got to try them. I'll look for the pans here too, but we have a lot fewer resources than you do.
