ingredients

directions

  • Sift together the flour, dry milk, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar; then beat in the eggs.
  • Mix the pumpkin and vanilla.
  • Add the dry ingredients alternately with ginger ale, mixing well after each addition.
  • In a large heavy pan, heat 3 inches of oil to 375 degrees.
  • Drop batter 1 tablespoon at a time for each doughnut into hot oil. Cook 4-5 doughnuts at a time for about 2 minutes, turning to brown evenly. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain (paper bags work good for this).
  • Combine sugar and cinnamon in a paper bag and shake doughnuts in the bag to coat.
  • These are best served immediately, though they may be made a day ahead and reheated in a 450 degree oven for 5-6 minutes.

    Delicious and easy, I was afraid to make a donut, but these are really a "piece of cake". LOL. I did add a little more spice, just my preference, but they are terrific just as they are!! Another winner, Engrossed! **Made for October Beverage Tag 2007**

    These are indeed "unusual and wonderful." They are pretty easy to mix up and even the first couple that got too brown were very good. I love the cinnamon and sugar coating. I might even make them spicier next time - maybe add something like applesauce to the mix. Thanks for sharing these easy-to-make doughnuts.
