Blogoween: Pumpkin Donuts

It's weekend, so what better way to spend it than making (and eating) treats. In today's post, I will teach you and easy recipe for cute and tasty Halloween donuts!

Recipe for the dough has been posted in this blog 2015, and you can see that post here (click!)

Pumpkin Spice Donuts (Gluten free)

1 3/4 cups gluten free flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ginger

 1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin, or any 100% pumpkin puree
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
 3 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

 Mix the first group of ingredients in a bowl. Take another bowl, and mix (and whisk) the others together in that. Combine the two mixtures, and put the dough into a donut pan. Bake at 425 degrees F for 7 minutes or until golden brown (218 degrees Celsius).

I made my own pumpkin puree, and funny enough my cat liked it as well (I only used pumpkin in it, which is safe for cats!). If you are like me and can't find canned pumpkin, just do your own puree. There are tons of recipes out there, I got my guidelines from The Pioneer Woman, but it's basically as simple as roasting the pumpkin in slices in the oven until soft, then scraping it into a mixer/blender and mixing it into a smooth puree. Be careful with the hot pumpkin though, we don't want to get burned!

I actually had so much dough I also made muffins out of it - which were used in another baking post this Blogoween (coming up on 12th!). And I still have extras in the freezer because as you can see, the dough is enough for a lot of baked goodies. (Depending how big you make them of course!)

For the frosting, you need the following:

3 dl (1,25 cups) powdered sugar
2 tbsp water
orange food coloring - or yellow and red
+ dark chocolate for drizzling 

Mix the sugar and water in a bowl, and add either if the consistency isn't right - the frosting should be quite thick, but not too dry so that it spreads nicely on the donuts. Add your coloring and mix it well into the frosting. When the frosting is the color you desire, pour it into a piping bag (or regular freezer bag like I did) and cover the donuts with frosting. Melt the dark chocolate and drizzle over the donuts any way you want.
