{mini} pumpkin doughnuts

Heat or no heat, we are ready for fall.

Halloween costumes have been chosen, and plans are in the works.

Unfortunately, my pumpkins are not growing as well as I’d hoped.
Our new house has garden beds, and something is a bit off.
We did not have much success this year.

So, we will be buying pumpkins
for carving, and
for eating

We LOVE these doughnuts (even if they are fried)

For the doughnuts:
heat oil in a LARGE pot (I  used canola oil)
over med- med/high

combine 1/3 cup of butter with 1/2 cup of brown sugar
cream together and
add 1 tsp of vanilla and 1 egg
add 3/4 cup of pumpkin
about 2 cups of flour (I used a bit less because I wanted to use whole wheat)
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg

roll into balls (about 1 tbsp)
fry a few at a time

once slightly cooled roll in a mixture of cinnamon sugar – 4 tbsp of sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon

I love the flavors of fall {apparently so do my dogs}
