At first as the weather cooled off and summer said goodbye, I was sad. I would miss the fresh berries, watermelon, and ripe, red tomatoes. But then I remembered that along with cooler days and longer nights, fall brings us apples and pumpkins and other delicious goodies! I have been scrolling through Pinterest looking for unique pumpkin recipes and boy are there a lot of them! I decided to treat my kids to some homemade pumpkin donuts this week.

The kids get mighty sick of cereal every morning and threaten to skip breakfast altogether when I bring out the overnight oatmeal too often. Do you know what pumpkin donuts smell like while they are baking? Heaven! Pure and simple heaven!
Glaze or Cinnamon and Sugar?
Depending on your own preferences, you can either coat these homemade donuts with cinnamon and sugar or make a homemade glaze. I actually thought that a maple glaze would taste delicious on them but thought it might be a tad too sweet. How that is sweeter than cinnamon and sugar, I don’t know. But, the cinnamon and sugar coating was delicious.
Homemade donuts are actually not hard to make at all as long as you have a donut pan. I bought the Wilton donut pan from Amazon last year and it works wonderfully. If you love pumpkin spice everything in the fall, check out my recipe for a pumpkin spics latte smoothie. Delicious and healthy way to start the day!
