baked pumpkin doughnuts

Doughnuts with hole as my mum used to call them when I was staring at the american style doughnuts with my nose stick to the shop’s pane, still cause some sentiment in me. As polish doughnuts are big balls of yeasted deep fried pastry filled usually with jam and the holed ones are still very ‘american’ for us here and were always a symbol of everything what America means. Originally fried in a deep deadly hot oil but usually not many of us want to play with it. What is more, such fatties are hard to wolf in big amount whilst those baked are lighter, healthier and ready in half an hour. Sure, the taste is a bit different but still great. They remind muffins, just are bit denser, but if you don’t have a specific pan you can easily bake them in a muffin pan. So they have almost-muffin-taste and their simplicity which can allay the real doughnuts sentiment. When we also put some root flavoured pumpkin puree into the batter we can obtain wonderfully fall tea treat. Because apart from pumpkin another fall characteristic is stardust.
