Last weekend I put down my drafting pen for a few hours and completed my first Daring Baker's Challenge! This month we all made doughnuts, any type was allowed but a few suggestions were given. Being completely obsessed with Pumpkin September through December, I chose to make the Pumpkin Doughnuts.
This was the first time I have ever made doughnuts, or fried anything for that matter! They were wonderful, I couldn't believe they looked like doughnuts, smelled like doughnuts, and tasted like doughnuts! After they cooled a little, I coated them in cinnamon sugar and filled them with pumpkin butter! Delicious!
