    Cool Baked Pumpkin Donuts ...

    Yes, seriously ... baked donuts. I even bought several dedicated pans just for baking donuts. Still tasty, but a little bit healthier than their deep fried cousins. I didn't glaze this batch since I have to watch my sugar intake. (Mind you I'll give most of these away to friends and neighbours anyway.)











    Baked Pumpkin Donuts

    INGREDIENTS:

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 cup canned pumpkin
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup milk
    1/4 cup shortening, butter, or margarine, softened

    For Icing:

    1 cup sifted powdered sugar
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 teaspoons milk (more if needed)

    DIRECTIONS:

    FOR DOUGHNUTS: In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking soda. Add pumpkin, eggs, milk, and shortening, butter, or margarine; beat with an electric mixer on low speed till mixed.

    Spoon the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip with a 1/2 inch opening. Pipe onto 2 greased baking sheets in 3-inch circles.

    Bake in a preheated 375F oven for 10 minutes, or till golden brown. Cool doughnuts on a rack over waxed paper.

    FOR ICING: In a small mixing bowl stir together powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir in enough milk to make a smooth icing of glazing consistency. Spoon icing over doughnuts.

    We used to make a kind of pumpkin cake using pancake mix, the kind where you just add water but would add two egg's and a can of pumpkin. Not pumpkin pie filling. We would then put it in a glass dish and bake .
    We go through life trying to make the best decisions we can based on the best infomation we can find, that turns out to be wrong.

    They are fairly common here and I've seen them in most stores that sell baking supplies. I'll admit that I bought 2 of them in local thrift stores! (I have 4 of the large pans.) I even found another pan that makes "mini donuts"! (So do these qualify as "diet donuts"? )

    there's no room for calories or carbs in the little ones so they must be okay.

    And if you break open the bigger ones all of the calories fall out so they're OK too ...

    When I have made Pumpkin (from the garden) I just cook then purea them in a food processor , a bit at a time ,
    measure and zip lock bag them in the freezer for use later

    I wonder if you could can them instead

    As I said I have to watch my sugar intake, but you could always ice yours!

    Canning pumpkin requires a pressure canner. There used to be a book called "Putting Food BY" that had instructions for all kinds of preserving food.

    One of my favorite Chief's told me that if you break the donuts in half and point the broken ends down and vigorously shake them the calories will fall out!
    When guns are outlawed only criminals and the government will have them and at that time I will see very little difference in either!

    We freeze our pumpkin. Bake the raw pumpkin....use the food processor to liquefy it....then scoup 2 cups into freezer zip-lok...and just freeze...its really simple...ours lasts for about 3 years before we start again.

    Have you tried it without the doughnut pans????
    Having a hard time finding them here.
    I would think without the sides, they would come out flat.
    Maybe a mini cup cake pan.
