As part of this celebration we’re cooking dishes inspired by our #SundaySupper members in the past year!I’m very excited to choose a recipe of one of my most admired friends from this group Nicole @Daily Dish Recipes and I’m making her Pumpkin Donut Puffs!The moment I saw this recipe at our #SundaySupper Event  I knew I had to try these!Our family loves Pumpkin desserts and this was no exception!

These puffs are soft,fluffy, and oh so delicious!The only change I made to Nicole’s recipe was adding Cinnamon and lowering the amount of Pumpkin Spice, since my kids find it a bit overpowering. Everything else is the same.It came out delicious and we’re enjoying these little puffs as a cute little snack :) Thankyou Nicole for a wonderful recipe!

    Soni, your donut puffs look just as perfect and delectable as when I first saw Nicole’s post. This recipe is on my must-make list too. I mean, you just can’t go wrong with spicy pumpkin flavoured donut holes. If I made these, they’d be gone in an hour. My taste buds would be happy but my waistline not so much…although, since they’re baked and not fried, they’re totally healthy(er) right? 😉

    Thank you, Soni! I’ve made big pumpkin donuts but have yet to try mini baked donuts. Love that I can make these in my mini muffin pans or cake pop pans and avoid frying.
    Delectable and delicious and mini donuts are always popular and perfect for meetings.
    Again, many thanks!
