Two Ingredient Pumpkin Donuts

Hello, September, hello fall.

Tis the season for all things pumpkin, including pumpkin donuts (or doughnuts.. however you want to spell it). I’m thoroughly impressed with this super easy pumpkin doughnut recipe. Two ingredients¬†and a donut baking pan.

Found this recipe and decided to give them a whirl. It seemed simple enough, just mix, pour, bake. My donut pan was getting sad sitting on my baking shelf. I haven’t used it in months. And with fall right around the corner, well, it just made sense. Sadly, it’s been super hot out, so this is my only real sign of fall. I’m contemplating more pumpkin dishes soon. Maybe I’ll find some way to make pumpkin Rice Krispy Treats, what do you think?

1 tsp of cinnamon (optional)

The Holy Donut, Holy Cow

Holy Donuts

Ummm, can we talk about this for a minute? Potato donuts? I got halfway through one before I even knew what I was eating, and wouldn’t have been any the wiser had someone not said something to me. Turns out The Holy Donut (in Portland, Maine) serves up some really delicious sweets.

Real Maine potatoes in the donuts, local dairy, pure cane sugar, and no artificial dyes, fake sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup, or hydrogenated oils. Heaven! Plus they taste AMAZING!

One of my coworkers brought a dozen in with some pretty interesting flavors, like Chocoalte Seasalt and one called Mojito (there was fresh mint mixed in). I was blown away, and it’s totally inspiring me to start looking into new donut recipes again. But for now, you’ll just have to enjoy this really delicious picture of the sweets we devoured.
