Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Pumpkin Donuts

Posted on

It’s another fall recipe for all the befilledup readers! Ready, set, go…

The reason I was so excited to make these pumpkin donut holes was because every time I step foot in Dunkin’ Donuts, I ponder about getting a donut with my coffee. I try to squash the idea quickly because every time I eat a donut from Dunkin’ Donuts, although they are delicious, I get really bad indigestion and heartburn. To be quite honest, they make me burp. I love the little fried donut holes but they don’t seem to love me! I made these Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Pumpkin Donuts to help my Dunkin’ Donuts craving. Let me just tell you, they hit the spot. They hit the nail on the head to be exact with their delicious pumpkin taste, with their moist centers, and with their perfect fall feeling they give you once you pop one! Maybe these could be something to make for your family or loved one this weekend. They will “love you long time.”
