Baked Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes
For the donuts-
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoons ground cloves
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup canned plain pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 cup milk
For the coating:
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
Preheat oven 350°F. Spray each cup in a 24-cup mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
In a separate, large bowl whisk together oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and milk until smooth. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined ? do not over mix!
Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
While the muffins bake, melt butter in one bowl and combine granulated sugar and cinnamon in another bowl. Remove muffins from oven and cool for about 5 minutes, or until just cool enough to handle. Dip each muffin in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon sugar to coat. These are delicious served warm or at room temperature.
