So you might have noticed it is October and I have not posted any pumpkin recipes yet (ok this beer cheese was made with pumpkin beer, but no actual pumpkin). And that is because I was saving up for this…I have declared this week PUMPKIN WEEK. Yep that’s right, I made up my own food holiday week.

As you might remember from last year, I loooove pumpkin. The second the temperature starts to drop and the leaves start to change, all I want to eat is pumpkin everything, all the time. And so I decided to share my pumpkin love with you and bring you 5 days of pumpkin recipes.

And I figured the best way to kick off PUMPKIN WEEK is with donuts! Because I love making baked donuts almost as much as I love pumpkin. And I also wanted a reason to use these cute fall sprinkles. So for my first recipe of the week, I bring you Baked Pumpkin Donuts with Chocolate Icing.

Happy Friday! Labor Day Weekend is so bittersweet. I love having a day off work, the promise of my favorite season ahead, and Notre Dame football starting tomorrow (!). But on the other hand, it means the end of summer which is always kind of sad. So to send summer off in style I drank a bottle of Rosé with my friends last night and made baked blueberry donuts for you – because nothing says summer to me more than fresh berries! And Rosé.

Also, today marks the year anniversary of the Mystery Dish group!! I joined the group late, but I still get to celebrate with them, right?! We are giving away a copy of two fabulous cookbooks – Luca Manfe’s My Italian Kitchen and Christina Ha’s Recipes from My Home Kitchen – scroll to the bottom and enter to win!

I always hear people say that they are either a lemon lover or a chocolate lover and I never really understood that – why can’t you be both?? If I had to pick, I (obviously) pick chocolate. But I really love lemon too! So even though I could eat these chocolate frosted donuts every day, I wanted to give lemon donuts a shot.

And wow, I’m so glad I did! These baked lemon donuts are absolutely amazing. The flavor is delicious – so fresh and citrusy.  I think these would be a lovely thing to make for Mother’s Day brunch!

Guinness Stout Chocolate Donuts #KissMeImIrish

Guinness Stout beer in the batter and the icing really makes the chocolate flavor shine in these baked donuts. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day breakfast!
Guinness Stout Chocolate Donuts | chezcateylou.com Who wants Guinness for breakfast?! Ok I know, it sounds kind of weird. And I felt strange cracking open a beer at 8am. But let me tell you – it tastes amazing in these donuts! You can’t really taste beer, it just brings out the chocolate flavor. And, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s day than with Guinness and sprinkles.

When my friend Connie over at URBAN BAKES invited me to her #KissMeImIrish St. Patrick’s Day blog party, I was so in! 12 of us made fun St. Patrick’s Day treats for you – and they all include alcohol! That was actually a total coincidence – great minds think alike.  Links to all the delicious recipes are at the bottom of the post, so make sure to check them out.
