I just really felt like something pumpkinny yesterday. And I had thought…I wonder if there was a recipe out there for pumpkin donuts…wouldn’t that just taste so incredible? At least I thought so. And I actually did indeed find a recipe that was pumpkin donuts. I am so excited! So, I will be making that either tomorow or this weekend sometime. Here is what I found from Epicurious.
Powdered Sugar Glaze
preparationFor spiced sugar:
Sprinkle 2 rimmed baking sheets lightly with flour. Press out 1/3 of dough on floured surface to 1/2- to 2/3-inch thickness. Using 2 1/2-inch-diameter round cutter, cut out dough rounds. Arrange on sheets. Repeat with remaining dough in 2 more batches. Gather dough scraps. Press out dough and cut out more dough rounds until all dough is used.
Using 1-inch-diameter round cutter, cut out center of each dough round to make doughnuts and doughnut holes.
Line 2 baking sheets with several layers of paper towels. Pour oil into large deep skillet to depth of 1 1/2 inches. Attach deep-fry thermometer and heat oil to 365Â°F to 370Â°F. Fry doughnut holes in 2 batches until golden brown, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain. Fry doughnuts, 3 or 4 at a time, until golden brown, adjusting heat to maintain temperature, about 1 minute per side. Using slotted spoon, transfer doughnuts to paper towels to drain. Cool completely.
For powdered sugar glaze:
Makes about 24 doughnuts and 24 doughnut holes.
