Okay. So these may not fit the traditional definition of donuts. They’re not fried. They’re not cream or jelly filled. They won’t send your blood sugar soaring.
Trust, I love me a donut. And I’m mighty skeptical of donut impersonators.
(Is it donut or doughnut? Hmmm.)
What these Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts are is absolutely delicious and I’m pretty sure they’ll satisfy any donut craving.
Did I mention they’re pumpkin spice? Yeah, there’s that.
If you’re wondering, these little gems of goodness are made in a mini muffin tin. In which case they might be classified as muffins. But I’m sticking with donuts. Or maybe fauxnuts? Whatever you call them, they’re darn good. My kids demolished an entire batch in about ten minutes flat.
And yes, I totally told them they were eating donuts and they totally believed me and had mischievous little looks on their faces because they thought they were eating AN ENTIRE BATCH OF DONUTS before dinner.
Mom, 1. Kids, 0.
Serve these up for a breakfast treat with a glass of milk or a hot mug of tea or coffee.
