Pumpkin Cardamom donut holes

Pumpkin Cardamom donut holes

So first the name.Since it comes in my mind every time i think of it.Is it DONUT?or DOUGHNUT?Though i am mostly adapted to American English ‘donut’ makes me cringe a little,just a little,dare i say it.I know its short and catchy and all that..but still…

Now to the next important part of the story.Do you LIKE doughtnuts?Both of my kids certainly do but me and my hubby..hmmm…its too sweet for us.

So when we go out for doughnuts,i order myself doughnut holes while my kids are gorging on  fried dough,rolled in sugar ,sprinkled with rainbow colors.

Doughnut holes are basically leftover middle round  part of ‘doughnut ‘,as it is  being holed out in the middle.Fried in hot oil traditionally. I like it simply rolled in cinnamon sugar.So much so,that i baked it.With a twist .I added pumpkin for the fall weather and cardamom for the aroma that i love.

  • I obviously used whole wheat and turbinado sugar.You can use regular AP and white sugar.I would try with coconut sugar next.
  • I added generous amount of cardamom but you can stick with cloves and nutmeg or just use pumpkin pie spice.
  • I thought sweetness could have been cut by 1/8-1/4 cup at least.It was plenty sweet for us.I rolled may be 3 dozen doughnut holes in cinnamon sugar and left the rest uncoated. My kids though prefer the sugar coated but they eat the plain ones too.
  • I made littlest of donut holes for my little kids.So it made 5 dozen donut holes for us.

I based the recipe from twopeasandtheirpod.
