Baked Pumpkin Doughnut Holes

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. all spice
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup milk

Topping:
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
2 teas. cinnamon


Mix dry ingredients in a bowl


In a separate bowl, mix the oil, brown sugar, egg, pumpkin, milk, and vanilla. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, until just combined. Be careful not to over-mix. 

Grease a mini muffin pan with cooking spray. I was able to get 40 out of one batch. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. 

Melt the butter and combine the cinnamon and sugar. 

After the doughnut holes are done baking, dip the top of the doughnut into the melted butter and roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. 
You could roll the whole doughnut, but just doing to top is more than enough sugar. Sometimes we eat them right out of the oven without the cinnamon and sugar topping.
