Baked Pumpkin Donuts

These are incredible simple to make and a must in October. Soft and tender with just the right amount of sugar and spice, perfect for homemade treats on Halloween.

There will be left over sugar spice mix, do save for sprinkling on all manner of sweet treats over the season, from pancakes, to porridge and swirled into hot chocolate.
