‘Tis the season for PUMPKIN ERRRRTHANG! But seriously, I attempt to eat and drink everything with a hint of Pumpkin Spice. I don’t care if that puts me in the #basic category because pumpkin spice is my jam! For this recipe, I wanted to recreate that pumpkin spice donut you would get at a pumpkin patch! They are extremely soft and moist with a cinnamon coating. Now I can’t take credit for this recipe, simply because I’m not creative enough to think of a ‘from scratch’ recipe myself. I got this recipe off of Laura In The Kitchen. Laura has her own blog filled with hundreds of easy to follow recipes, along with a Youtube channel showing you how-to steps for her recipes. This recipe was very easy to make and I received numerous compliments when I brought them to a birthday that evening.
