Simple Chocolate Pumpkin Doughnuts

This weekend was the coldest it has been so far this Fall and it got me and my kids in the mood for Fall!  We decided to make homemade doughnuts!! This past summer I was able to find a mini doughnut maker for $3.00 at a yard sale so we decided to try it out and see if we could make some doughnuts.

Simple Chocolate Pumpkin Doughnuts

This recipe is so simple that anyone could make it.  All you need are two simple ingredients: Chocolate Cake Mix and Canned Pumpkin.  We used Bakers Corner Brand 100% All Natural Pumpkin (from Aldi) and Pillsbury Purely Simple Chocolate Cake mix. ( I had a coupon for this a couple weeks ago and decided to try it out because it doesn’t have nearly as many horrible additives as some other cake mixes).
