The art of distraction is a beautiful thing. I love Gus, but he’s a pain in the ass when I’m trying to maneuver around the kitchen. He’ll sit down on my feet or lean against me & I inevitably step on his little Gussy paws.
Keeps him distracted & out of my way… So I can make things like Pumpkin Donuts:
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon & sugar for dusting
Beat the butter in a large mixing bowl with mixer to soften for about 30 seconds. Add dry ingredients less the flour & beat together. Add eggs, milk & pumpkin.
Stir in the flour using a wooden spoon & pour batter into donut maker for 3-5 minutes.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
