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

  1. In 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.
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Add flour mixture to apple juice mixture; beat until just blended ( the dough will be soft)
  4. On a baking sheet, place a sheet of parchment paper; place dough on parchment.
  5. Lightly flour dough and using a rolling pin, roll dough to a 1/2 inch thickness. Top with a layer of plastic wrap
  6. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Meanwhile, in a shallow dish, combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice; set aside.
  7. Remove dough from refrigerator and cut out doughnuts using a doughnut cutter. Re-pat leftover dough into a 1/2 inch thickness and cut out more doughnuts.
  8. Place cut out dough onto fresh parchment paper.
  9. In a large pot, heat oil. Bring to a temperature of 325 degrees. While temperature is heating, line a baking sheet with paper towels.
  10. Place dough, approximately 4 at a time into hot oil. The dough will sink, and then rise. When dough rises, check them, if they are golden, flip doughnuts over; fry for approximately 35 seconds more ( till gently golden )
  11. Remove from oil, using a slotted spoon, place doughnuts on paper towels. Repeat, until all doughnuts are cooked.
  12. Dip doughnuts into sugar- spice mix, coat thoroughly.
