Pumpkin Toffee Donuts

April 15, 2019Teresa

I know. You’re probably wondering by now: Another donut recipe?? Yes! Pumpkin Toffee Donuts. Let that sink in. These luscious Pumpkin Donuts have Heath English Toffee Bits inside the donut and on top of the icing glaze. They are some of the most mouthwatering donuts I’ve ever made. And I’ve made plenty! Truly, these donuts are so drool worthy. You won’t be able to put one down once you start eating.

Back in February we hosted a “Breakfast For Dinner” night for our Friday night care group. Among a lot of other things, I made two kinds of Pumpkin Donuts. They were both fantastic. But I have to admit, the richness of these donuts had me hooked. Every single person that tried these donuts oooohed and aaaahhhed over them. Just about everyone took a few home to eat later. John took the remainder out to his office where they always are well received.

I know you look at the ingredients list and say, “Nah, that’s too difficult for me.” Don’t do it! These donuts really are not that difficult to make. You combine the dry ingredients. You combine the wet ingredients. You combine both with the Heath English Toffee bits, and you’re done! After baking, you glaze the donuts in a simple vanilla icing. Then you sprinkle each one with a spoonful of additional Heath English Toffee Bits. After that, you eat and enjoy!

I’ve had a lot of people ask me where I got my large 20-cavity donut pans. I live in the Dallas metroplex area. We have a chain of grocery stores called H-E-B. They stock them in their stores. I’ve also picked them up at JoAnne’s Fabric Shop. They normally run about $15 bucks a piece. It is a terrific investment if you enjoy donuts. Around Christmas time I had my husband shopping for donut pans when he found this one. I love it because most of my recipes (single batch) do not go over 20 donuts. He picked up a bunch of them for me so I can bake a lot of donuts at once without constantly having to clean pans.

When I bake donuts, I usually go all out. By that, I mean that I usually make about 3 to 6 different kinds at a time. Sometimes I make two or three batches of a single recipe, but not always. I have to admit, I love the fun of making donuts. Many people prefer to decorate cakes. I prefer to bake donuts. (Never fry them). I would never make donuts if I had to fry them. That’s too much work. 🙂 Most of the time the donuts take about 10 minutes to bake in a 425 degree oven. Unless I overfill the cavities – then they may take 12 to 15 minutes. But that’s rare.

I suppose you could call me the “Donut Queen.” I love donuts. They’ve always been my comfort food of choice. Thankfully, when I make them, I usually plan to share them with others and not eat them all by myself. Anyway, if you love donuts too, you’ve just got to give these awesome Pumpkin Toffee Donuts a go. You will be drooling from the first bite. Yes, close your eyes and indulge.
