Holiday Pumpkin Donuts


Recommended Posts

These are awesome to just munch on.


For the donuts:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin — homemade (see below) or canned
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Oil for frying (2″ deep)


  1. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk the wet ingredients together in another bowl.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet.
  4. Combine gently until a soft dough is formed.
  5. Refrigerate 1 to 24 hours.
  6. When ready to fry, heat the oil to 355 degrees F.
  7. Use a spoon to scoop out small balls, about 1 teaspoon at a time, and roll them between your palms to make them rounder. The dough will be a little soft and stick to your hands but it’s worth it to get some awesome donuts.
  8. Carefully drop them into the oil and fry for about 4 minutes, turning them if you need to to get both sides really browned.
  9. Remove with a slotted spoon and set them to cool briefly on a rack. (Try one now before you fry all of them to make sure they are cooking all the way through! You may need to adjust your time or temperature.)
  10. While they are still warm, toss them in sugar to coat.
  11. Put them back on the rack and insert a slivered almond into the top of each one.
  12. Serve ASAP
