Baked Pumpkin Donuts

Baked Pumpkin Donuts

It's hard to believe this is my 5th fall in a row having this blog. In November 2009, I posted these pumpkin pie bars ('scuse the horrible photo) and outed myself to the world (aka the 3 people who read my blog back then) as a pumpkin-aholic. I feel like it's become such a food blogger cliche to lose one's shit over pumpkin, however, I do not care. Pumpkin is unarguably delicious, and I get super psyched to bake with it every fall.

Fortunately for me, James (the aforementioned boyfriend) also enjoys pumpkin, and he tracked down a case of the elusive Southern Tier Pumking last week. What I'm about to write next is very important: Pumking is the best pumpkin beer I've ever had. If you can find it in your neck of the woods, buy it. Unlike most pumpkin beers that only taste like spices, Pumking actually tastes like pumpkin pie. It's incredible. Anyway, I decided that we needed a pumpkin food to pair with our pumpkin beer...so, here we are. These probably make more sense for breakfast, but life is too short to be sensible. Have a donut with your beer. Or beer with your breakfast...your choice.
