Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and I couldn’t let it pass without sharing these Mini Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts. These are so quick and easy to make, and you probably have the ingredients on hand, especially if you are prepping for the holiday.
You will need a Mini Doughnut Pan. I finally broke down and bought two, because there is just no substitution for a mini doughnut pan. My kids are thrilled.
