Confession... Unlike 99% of the female population I am not a huge fan of this whole pumpkin spice thing... I just don't get it. It's almost like a freakin national holiday when the Starbucks pumpkin spice latte makes its seasonal debut... And now it's everywhere you turn like that creepy guy at the office Christmas party... Seriously, there is pumpkin spice everything; from toothpaste to sausages... I'm pretty sure the pumpkin spice scented tampons are a hoax, but I wouldn't put it past the American consumer to want something like that... it's absolutely bananas!
But before you go and start thinking I'm not hip to the trend, or a complete pumpkin spice curmudgeon... I do enjoy a handful of items that could be put into the "pumpkin spice" category. For example, I love pumpkin pie and pumpkin scones... oh, and I love rich and creamy pumpkin soup... but one of my absolute favorites has to be pumpkin donuts... but that could be solely based on my insane love of donuts... I love me some donuts!
For the past week, much to the chagrin of my ass and thighs, I have been testing cake batter donut recipes... I'm trying to find the right balance and ingredient proportions to make the perfect cake batter-baked donut that I can share with you all. Aren't I the sweetest?!
Well my friends, I hope you enjoyed this little sweet treat!! Oh, and if your lucky like me, you're blessed with a 4-day weekend... whoop whoop! Have a great day, and remember...
Get dessert, life's too damn short!
