Pumpkin Donut Puffs #SundaySupper

In May 2012,I received an invitation to join a group called SundaySupper.At that time I’d just heard about them, but didn’t know much.I accepted the invitation.Little did I know that in less than a year’s time it would become a huge movement to bring back Supper Around the Family Tables in homes across America!An initiative started by the lovely Isabel of FamilyFoodie our group now consists of a vast number of bloggers who inspire each other and so many people out there to serve homemade meals and bring families together at mealtimes!As #SundaySupper celebrates its First Anniversary I feel very fortunate to be a part of this amazing community that has inspired,educated, supported and nurtured the blogger in me.Its a community filled with some of the most amazing people I’ve come to know and become friends with!

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!

  3. Wow….love this pumpkin doughnut puffs so much! I can’t wait to make this. Thank to both you and Nicole for this great recipe!

  4. I need these in my life…ASAP! They’re calling my name. Yum!

  5. 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? ;)

  7. I Love that these are baked and not fried (that whole ‘fear of frying’ thing didn’t go away after the donuts I made last week!). Pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors and these look like the perfect breakfast treat or snack to bring to work. So glad you chose them!

  18. What pretty little donut puffs! I’m not a fan of pumpkin however I think these would be fabulous using sweet potato puree. I’ve made baked donuts but not the little puffs or holes. Adding yet another thing to my to-make list…

  19. 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!

  20. Oh, boy, do these look irresistible, Soni! My kiddos would love these, too!

  21. These are adorable and they´re baked! Can´t wait to make them, I just love anything pumpkin!
