Let the Countdown Begin

Fall is still 4 weeks away, but it's not to early to begin the countdown to the Circleville Pumpkin Show.

58 days from today.

That's not really the most important thing I wanted to write about, though.

I visited the website for the show: http://www.pumpkinshow.com/

They have a recipe section! Now you can make your own pumpkin doughnuts.

It's not really the same unless you stand in that line to duke it out with a flanned grandma for the last half dozen, but I'll bet they do in a pinch.

Here it is:


  • Oil for deep frying

  • 1 1/2 cups flour

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 2 tbsp. baking powder

  • 1/2 tbsp. salt

  • 1/4 tbsp. cinnamon

  • 1/4 tbsp. ginger

  • 1/4 tbsp. nutmeg

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 2 tbsp. oil

  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla

  • 1 egg 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon

In deep fryer or heavy pan, heat 1 quart of oil to 375 degrees F. In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Blend well. Combine pumpkin milk oil, vanilla and egg. Stir into dry ingredients until just moistened. Drop by teaspoonfuls into hot oil 5 or 6 at a time. Fry doughnut drops 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Combine 1/2 cups sugar and 1 tbsp. cinnamon, roll warm doughnuts in mixture. Makes 30 -36 doughnut drops.
