With Thanksgiving only a week away, I have pumpkin pie spices and baked goods on my mind so when I learned that there was a birthday party in my 4 year-old’s pre-school class that I would need to supply a safe treat for I got excited. An excuse to come up with another “safe” treat. Even though my 4 year-old does eat gluten, I have made it a rule to only bake “safe” treats in our home that the Gluten-Free Kid (GFK) can enjoy as well.
Being a busy mom to three kiddos didn’t leave me a lot of time so I looked to my good friend Betty Crocker for some quick inspiration. I whipped up a box of Betty Crocker’s Gluten-Free Yellow Cake Mix with a cup of pumpkin and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Then, instead of my usual cupcakes I baked these tasty morsels in my donut pan and we got sweet success! Gluten-Free, dairy free pumpkin cake donuts, yummy! The kids ate them plain for dessert last night and today I frosted one and decorated it with sprinkles so it looks like a typical bakery cake doughnut the other kids will be having at pre-school.
