Pumpkin Donuts
Recipe type: Bread, Dessert
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  1. Beat eggs and sugar together till light and fluffy.
  2. Combine oil, buttermilk and pumpkin and add to egg mixture.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients together.
  4. Add to the pumpkin mixture.
  5. Chill 1 hour.
  6. Turn out the dough on a floured surface.
  7. Roll it out to ½ inch thick and cut into desired shapes.
  8. Drop donuts into deep hot oil (375 degrees).
  9. Donuts will rise to the surface. Turn them once so both sides brown.
  10. Remove and drain well.
  11. Roll in sugar and enjoy!
** Best eaten hot and fresh out of the frying oil – unfortunately they don’t keep well once made. The dough DOES keep well in the fridge – we just keep the deep fryer out on the counter for a week or so for spontaneous batches.
