Yummy doughnuts from an online breakfast site. You can experiment with this, and instead of pumpkin puree, try applesauce or mashed banana! New England, Mid West, West, South

okay, so I didn't wait until the donuts were completely cooled before I rolled them in the powdered sugar...I ended up with a goopy mess on some of the donuts. Since I was inpatient, the appearance is somewhat lacking, however the donuts themselves taste splendid. I was expecting a raised donut bready texture, these are more along the lines of a hushpuppy. Also, I struggled somewhat because the dough was extra sticky. I'm not sure if it is because of the altitude that I am at or what. All in all, good recipe!
