Pumpkin Doughnuts

Pumpkin Doughnuts
from Annies Eats

3 1/2 c all purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1 c sugar
1/2 c butter, softened to room temp
1 large egg
2 large egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c milk or buttermilk
1 c canned pumpkin

Oil for frying- canola, peanut, vegetable

Combine flour, powder, soda, salt and spices, blend well. In another bowl mix sugar and butter, add egg and egg yolks, then vanilla until creamy. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup combine milk and pumpkin,  Next add pumpkin alternately with flour mixture into creamed butter and sugar. Mix well and cover and chill 3 hours.
Heat 3 inches of oil in a large deep fry pan or Dutch oven. Use a thermometer to maintain a temp of 365-370 degrees.
Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick, cut with doughnut cutter, or round biscuit or cookie cutter. Use smaller shape for centers, Keep holes for frying.
 When oil is heated carefully drop doughnuts in and cook 3 or 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through and golden brown. Doughnut holes will take less time.
When still warm but cool enough to handle dip into cinnamon and sugar or cool completely and drizzle with powdered sugar icing.
Icing
1 c powdered sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of cloves, nutmeg and ginger
2 Tbs milk

Oh My! those look so good. I have to try them but I will leave off the icing. I love Pumpkin and I was just thinking that would just take away from the great taste. Thank you for sharing!
