Pumpkin Spice Doughnut Holes


Something I will mention repeatedly is that in order to be a successful frugal family you need to be able to cook up some yumminess! If you can cook up some yumminess then that will keep you out of the restaurants and in this case out of the doughnut shop!
This is one of our favorite fall and winter treats. I sent them to work with Wayne once and his employees kept asking for more.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin with nonstick spray. You will need to re-spray them between each batch
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves.
  3. In a separate large bowl, combine the oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and milk until smooth.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter.  This is not a stiff batter.
  5. Divide the batter  among the muffin cups, use 1 tablespoon in each cup. (I use my small tablespoon.)  Bake it for 10 to 12 minutes or until passes the toothpick test.
  6. Remove the muffins from the oven and allow to cool until  just cool enough to handle.
  7. With the melted butter in one bowl and the sugar and cinnamon combined in another, dip each muffin into the butter then roll in the cinnamon sugar to coat.
  8. Serve immediately.

I hope you enjoy these family favorites!

  2. I. Want. NOW. 🙂 I might just make these for myself for breakfast this morning. Oh, dear…the rest of my family doesn’t like pumpkin. Guess I’ll have to eat them all myself. Heehee. Thank you for sharing…stopping by from Coffee & Conversation.
