What are pumpkin donuts?
I’ve never made successfully baked pumpkin donuts before this year. It wasn’t until I transformed my favorite pumpkin loaf which I haven't shared yet into these cake-like donuts that I was truly satisfied with a traditional pumpkin donut. Um hello? Why didn’t I do that sooner?
Now on the blog, there is Keto Pumpkin Donuts and Regular for you to enjoy.
Supplies needed to make Pumpkin Donuts:
Why making donuts with the kids is fun?
