As soon as the leaves begin to fall, my kids are all requesting these wonderful doughnuts.
They are more of a cake doughnut, with a light sweetness and wonderful autumn spices.
Eat warm. Any leftovers? Re-heat in microwave for 10 seconds. YUMMMMM !

How to Make Pure Bliss Autumn Doughnuts

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl combine shortening & 1 cup sugar, beat until light, approximately 4 minutes. Add eggs, beat well, add apple juice concentrate and buttermilk. Mix until well combined.
  • 2In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice.
