Baked Pumpkin Doughnut Holes

Recipe courtesy of Hungry Couple

INGREDIENTS

1 3/4 Cup all purpose flour
2 Teaspoons baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/3 Cup canola oil
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon vanilla
3/4 Cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 Cup milk

COATING:
1/2 Stick unsalted butter, melted
3/4 Cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin puree and milk until smooth.  Add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.

2. Spray a 24 cup mini muffin tin with non-stick spray and scoop 1 oz. of batter into each cup.  Use a 1 oz. scoop for even distribution.  Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for approximately 12 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.  While the doughnuts are baking, prepare a bowl with the melted butter and another with the sugar and cinnamon combination.

3. Remove the doughnuts from the oven and allow to cool just enough to handle.  Dip each doughnut quickly into the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon sugar to coat.
