Pumpkin Doughnuts

IMG_6513Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve been very quite this past couple months. While I’ve been baking for the family, I haven’t had the time to write posts like I’d like too. Why? My event strategy business is blossoming and I have several new clients and many projects that occur in the fall and spring! Blessings for this Thanksgiving indeed.

We woke this morning and I thought pumpkin doughnuts would be a great Thanksgiving treat for everyone this morning breakfast! We’re planning on heading to Disney World for some weekend fun and these treats will be enjoyed by all on our short journey to the Magic Kingdom.

Super easy and so much fun to make! The great things, if you have pumpkin puree, you more than likely have all the other ingredients you need to make these delicious doughnuts. If you don’t have a doughnut pan, just make them as muffins! Delicious!

The aroma from the baking these great breakfast treats is sublime. Make the house smell festive and certainly Thanksgiving!

Enjoy and I look forward to baking more and sharing over the next few weeks as we prepare for the Holidays!

Enjoy the bake!
