Mini Pumpkin Spice Donuts

My kids went nuts over these donuts! I have never seen them devour anything so fast. They were eating the donuts as I was dipping them in cinnamon and sugar. I couldn't keep up with them. I finally had to tell them to stop eating so I could have some. They told me these were the best donuts they've ever had.

Mini Pumpkin Spice Donuts
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup milk

4 Tbsp butter, melted
2/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a mini donut pan with cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin, and milk until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Using a pastry bag or a spoon, carefully fill each donut cup with the batter. The donut cups should be full without overflowing. Bake for 8-9 minutes, until donuts spring back when gently touched. If using a large donut pan, bake for 12-15 minutes. Turn donuts onto a wire rack and cool for a few minutes.

Melt butter in a small bowl and combine sugar and cinnamon in another bowl. Dip each donut in butter, then coat in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Serve immediately.
