Who’s ready for some Pumpkin Chai Donuts?
It’s that time again, once again for the Secret Recipe Club reveal. After a crazy weekend with too many commitments, it was nice to have something so nice to look forward to baking. Truth is, I made these the day I first got my assignment for this month, but then decided that yesterday, it would be wonderful to make them again, because well…. they are just that good.
And this time I made them into actual donuts. Which I didn’t think would make them better, but they were.
My blog assignment for November was Sweet as Sugar Cookies. I loved her blog, it is filled with sweet treats and yummy desserts (along with some other delicious savory dishes.) A few favorites were Salted Honey Lavender Shortbread, Pumpkin Chai Bubble Bread, Butterscotch Yams and Spicy Peanut Butter Meatballs.
In the end, the Pumpkin Chai Donut Muffins won out because of my passion for all three. Pumpkin, Oh yeah, Chai? Yep! Donuts… I love donuts! So I made Pumpkin Chai Donuts. But you can also make them into muffins if you’d like. We did the first time.
I originally made them exactly the way she made them, into little mini muffin gems – they were amazing, so tender and moist and delicious. But I wanted to make them again. This time, I did a little of both, a few mini muffins gems and a few donuts. You can do it whichever way you wish.
The only change I really made to the whole recipe, was the cooking time and temperature. I really wanted a moist donut with the wonderful pumpkin and chai flavor to be the focus. I think I achieved that.
