I know that a love for all things pumpkin is terribly cliche and “pinteresty”, but gosh dangit, it’s autumn, and that orange squashy goodness is awfully hard to resist. I’ve been buying Trader Joe’s $1.99 organic canned pumpkin by the case load, so needless to say, there has been a lot of pumpkin consumption in the Howeshold as of late.
The best pumpkin recipe I’ve tried so far is this recipe for pumpkin spice doughnuts from Blue Eyed Bakers. They make them petite, I like mine big and fat, that’s just how I roll. As you can see from the photo above, I also like mine misshapen and ugly, but that doesn’t make them any less delectable. You could also make these in muffin form if you don’t have a doughnut pan. Honestly, I did not alter the Blue Eyed Bakers’ recipe one iota, so I’m not even going to post it. Just head over there and let the autumnal baking commence!
