Pumpkin Caramel Latte Donuts

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the crisp air, changing leaves, sweaters and all things pumpkin!

I stumbled across this recipe while on Pinterest.  I had all the ingredients, so I put my infant in the swing and mixed these up as quickly as I could.


I loved the balance of flavors...the little pumpkin cakes were spiced just right, with a hint of coffee and irresistible pockets of melted caramel.  The caramel came in the form of Kraft Caramel Bits, which I just discovered at the grocery store.  This is a terrible picture, but anyway...

No more unwrapping and chopping caramels for recipes.  These nuggets of goodness are worth buying.

See them in there?

I highly recommend eating the doughnuts soon after baking.  If you have to store them, warm them for a few seconds in the microwave before consumption.  The caramel will be a bit chewy if you don't.

I changed the glaze a bit from the original recipe.  I used 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 4 tablespoons boiling water.
