1 cup Pumpkin puree
½ cup Buttermilk
1/3 cup Sugar
2 each Eggs

Combine wet ingredients in a stainless steel bowl
Sift dry ingredients.
Add wet to the dry ingredients and mixing as little as possible. Until there are no lumps.
Refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
To fry – use a home deep fryer or prepare a stove top pot of oil heated to 350F using a deep-fry or candy thermometer to measure the temperature. Gently drop marble size pieces of the dough into the fryer being careful not to splash hot oil. The doughnuts take about 2½ minutes. You can turn them using a slotted spoon or chopsticks. Once cooked transfer them to a paper towel lined plate or tray to drain. Verify that the center of dough is cooked through and adjust timing accordingly.
Once the doughnuts have a chance to cool – toss them in the cinnamon sugar to coat and serve with a coffee cup of the dulce de leche, Enjoy!
