It is Pumpkin galore! Last fall I had made ‘baked Pumpkin donuts’ that the kids had just loved (and devoured). So this year again my munchkins were demanding the same. Being a blogger mom, I needed to make it even better for them right? And so what did I do? I added chocolate to the batter and TA da!… we had these delicious chocolate pumpkin donuts – the kind that instantly becomes everyone’s favorite!
I actually made a large batch – some pumpkin ones with a sugar glaze, some I just covered with cinnamon sugar and then these decadent chocolate pumpkin ones! I was making a big batch to assuage my guilt feelings since I was leaving my munchkins with my friend and neighbor for two days. I had to travel from work last week and so did my husband. Can you believe that? Two days out of 365 days that I need to travel, my hubby also needs to! For a couple days after we both got our travel schedule, we were wondering what to do. Luckily for us, our dear friend /neighbor came to the rescue. She kindly offered to watch the kids. Such a sweet action deserved more sweetness and that’s when I decided to bake this ‘pumpkin sweetness’ signature donut collection! 🙂 Dropped the donuts and my munchkins over before heading to the airport and wished S (my friend) and her husband all the very best handling 4 kids! God bless their hearts. The kids had a party and were slightly disappointed I think when I returned 🙂 But the donuts were indeed enjoyed by all!
This time I modified the recipe slightly by baking the donuts at a higher temperature than I had done before. This way the donuts baked pretty fast.
Bringing these yummy donuts to Fiesta Friday this week!
