Donuts, or doughnuts?
Which do you say? …Or rather “spell”?
I use both. I guess it just depends on my mood. “Doughnuts” seems like the classier, more hoity-toity aunt, while “donuts” is that familiar friend. Ya know? (Yes, I just compared the separate spellings of a word to people, and then went on about it far too long…)
ANYWAY, no matter what you call ’em, these are crazy good.
Can we just all take a second and admit something?
Baked donuts ain’t got nothing on fried. Baked donuts are maybe easier, and definitely healthier, yes. But we all know they do not taste better. Sorry, you guys, it’s just a fact. Don’t get me wrong, they can be super tasty, just not as tasty… (You have NO idea how difficult it was for me to not write: “Donut get me wrong.” My terrible love for bad pun humor is something I have to physically restrain.)
So, I fried these. Actually, I fried them in coconut oil, which is kinda neat-o, and very delicious.
Oh and yes, more pumpkin. You didn’t think that short break of posts with no orange squash in sight would last long did you? No real respite from pumpkin in the Fall, guys.
These have a whole bunch of pumpkin in ’em, because it’s not only in the dough, but it’s in the glaze! And the glaze is disgustingly addicting and you have to try real hard not to eat it all by the fingerful so that you can coat your glorious donuts.
And just when you thought that was enough, that it couldn’t get better, guess what? There’s a giveaway over there for some amazing pieces from Le Creuset! Check it out!
