Pumpkin Pecan Doughnuts | chezcateylou.com

I have been dreaming about pumpkin doughnuts ever since I made these.  They were SO good. But I always like to try out new recipes (and then share them with you!), so I went on the hunt for a different pumpkin doughnut recipe.  It didn’t take me long to find one.  Pumpkin recipes have really exploded in the past month. Everywhere I look, there is pumpkin – Pinterest, food blogs, Instagram pix.  But I am not complaining, I am also pumpkin obsessed!  There is just something about the color and flavor that screams fall.  …

I can’t even tell you how excited I am to post this recipe.  I have seen so many delicious doughnut recipes on Pinterest lately, and I just had to get involved.  So I bought two of these doughnut pans the other weekend and literally could not wait to put them to use!  And what better recipe to start with than a pumpkin doughnut!  I am happy to report they did not disappoint.  Thebetterhalf, a doughnut connoisseur, was skeptical about the concept of a baked doughnut, and he LOVED these.

The texture is remarkably similar to a cake doughnut, but a bit lighter.  The pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices give the most delicious flavor and the cinnamon sugar coating ties the whole thing together.  I snuck a few bites plain and these doughnuts are fantastic even without the cinnamon sugar.

This recipe makes enough for 15 doughnuts, and the pans only make 6 each. Luckily in my doughnut pan buying binge, I also picked up this adorable pan.  So I used my extra batter to make some pumpkin doughnut holes!  You could just bake the doughnuts in a second batch though. I see many more baked doughnut recipes in my future … these are on the menu for Saturday.  How incredible do they look??  These new doughnut pans are going to be trouble!  …
