Pumpkin Spice Mini Donuts
by Kimberley

Is it Donuts or Doughnuts? I'm not sure. What I do know, is that I LOVE donuts! But only really good ones. I love to bake my own and the best part is that you can make them virtually in an flavor with any topping you desire. With fall approaching, I got in the pumpkin mood, and made you these delightful Pumpkin Spice Mini Donuts. They are easy and won't last long!

(makes approx 24 mini donuts, using the Wilton mini donut pan)
-preheat oven to 425 degrees with rack in centre
-prepare mini donut pans and lightly  spray with vegetable oil
-prepare a large zip top bag as a piping bag- place in large mug with opening draped over edge of mug
-prepare cinnamon/sugar coating- in a medium bowl mix 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon and 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Mix the following in a large bowl: 3/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 teaspoon salt.
To this, add 1/4 cup milk, 1 egg and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil.
Mix all ingredients together until combined.
Spoon the batter into your plastic bag, seal bag, and cut corner of bag with scissors creating a hole that approximately 1/2 inch.
Pipe batter into pan(s), by swirling the bag around the donut circle in the pan. Do not overfill.
Bake for approximately 6 minutes until batter is cooked throughout.
Remove from oven, allow to cool for 5 minutes, turn donuts out and immediately toss in sugar mixture while still warm. 
Donuts will stay fresh in an sealed bag or container for up to 5 days, but they won't last that long.
Variations: swap out another spice such as nutmeg for pumpkin pie spice; drizzle with simple icing when completely cooled (1/2 cup confectioners sugar with 1 tablespoon milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract)

My Mom gave me my first cookbook when I was six years old. I have been baking & cooking ever since.

I specialize in artisan marshmallows & confections. I want to sell a product that I would feed my children. The ingredients are simple, often local, organic & fair trade as well. 

I love making marshmallows. Every single one. It brings me so much joy to create something unique, tasty, and delightful.
