When I was growing up, my dad always took us kids to get donuts on Saturday morning. I now do that with my own grandkids and they always look forward to donuts when I am there on a Saturday. Being that donuts are special in our family, sometimes making them at home are just as good. Especially with this Pumpkin Donuts Recipe.
Don’t these just look donut store-bought worthy? I thought so.
These would be so amazing dipped into some creamy hot chocolate.
So get your donut baking pan out. Here we go!

3 large eggs, room temperature

1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
2 cups powdered sugar
