It’s that time of year again, when pumpkin flavor pops up all over the place, even in our coffee. Fluffy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Donuts are a delicious mix of chocolate and pumpkin–how pumpkin is meant to be enjoyed!  These easy-to-make cake donuts make a great weekend treat for the whole family, and because they are baked, not fried, they are less greasy.  Dipped in a vanilla or chocolate glaze, hot from the oven, they are irresistible!

When the donuts are finished baking, remove from the oven and immediately dip each donut into the glaze, then place on a cooling rack (with waxed paper underneath to catch the drips).  These Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Donuts are best eaten right away or re-heated in the microwave for 5-8 seconds.  Makes about 15 – 18 donuts.
