Scale

Ingredients

For the donuts:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

For the coating:

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup sugar

For the ganache:

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup white chocolate melting chips

Instructions

For the donuts:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream until smooth. Whisk in the pumpkin puree, melted butter and vanilla extract.
  2. Fold the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice into the wet mixture until a batter has formed, it’s ok if it’s a little thick. Spoon the batter into a piping bag or a plastic food storage bag that has a corner snipped off. Pipe the batter into a greased donut baking pan, filling each one about 3/4 of the way full.
  3. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and they are cooked through. Let them cool slightly in the pan before turning them out onto a cooling rack to cool.

For the coating:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Have the melted butter ready to go in a separate medium-sized bowl.
  2. Starting an assembly line process, dunk each donut completely in the melted butter, making sure to get some on all sides and center, and then coat the donut in the cinnamon sugar. Transfer the coated donuts to a baking sheet fitted with a wire rack to set.

For the ganache;

  1. In a small sauce pan, heat the heavy cream over low heat until it just starts to simmer. Whisk in the white chocolate melting chips until completely melted and smooth.
  2. Drizzle, pour or dunk the donuts with the white chocolate ganache for topping. Enjoy!
