Sugar & Spice & Homer Price

This is one of my favorite books:

This is one of my favorite fall comfort foods [served warm & wrapped at our favorite pumpkin patch]:

I wish I had a donut machine that would produce pumpkin donuts like these in Homer Price time. Since I don[u]'t, here's the recipe that helps make treats like these a reality in my family. Sucks to be  you, Krispy Kreme!

Pumpkin Donuts
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
½ cup buttermilk
4 cups flour
2 tablespoons oil
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
Sugar for coating

Beat eggs and sugar until they are light and fluffy. Add the oil, pumpkin and buttermilk to the egg & sugar mixture. Mix dry ingredients together and add to the main mixture.
Chill for 1 hour. Turn out onto a floured board and roll to ½ inch thickness.
Cut shapes with a donut cutter. Deep fry until golden brown on one side.
Turn over [that's what she said]. Fry until the other side is also golden brown. Strain well and roll in sugar to serve.
