One of my favorite fall treats is baked pumpkin cake donuts. The way they smell when they bake is just heavenly, and I love that they are a relatively simple pumpkin dessert that the whole family will love.
I mentioned that these pumpkin donuts smell fantastic when baked, but the funny thing about these donuts is that they get better with time! They taste even better the next day if possible!
That said, when you store these donuts, you don't want to put them in a plastic bag. I tend to put cookies and other desserts in one-gallon zipper bags, but with these, they can get soggy this way. I recommend a plastic container lined with paper towels for storage.
I baked these pumpkin cake donuts in this great little donut pan
that you can get from Amazon. Baked donuts are so easy to make and I found that I use this pan quite often, especially during the holiday season.
If you like pumpkin but aren't a big fan of cinnamon, you can adjust the amount of cinnamon in the sugar filling. You can reduce the cinnamon to 1 tablespoon or even make 3 tablespoons if you REALLY LIKE cinnamon! Dropping it completely is also a choice.
