Pumpkin Doughnuts with Cinnamon Sugar

Oh the only joy for me in fall is baking with pumpkin.  There are sooooo many recipes out there to try.  For this recipe I had to find a doughnut pan..easier than it sounds.  Since I was headed to my local mall I thought I could get one there..nope.  Not in Target or Michaels or Macy's or Walmart .  So then I tried the Outlet Mall where a kitchen store is located.  I talked to the sales clerk and explained what I was looking for.  As we headed to the back of the store I noticed a lady following us.  "Excuse me," she said, "did I hear you say you were looking for a doughnut pan?"  I told her yes and that I hadn't been able to find one all day.  "Oh I am looking for one too." she told me.  "I found this great recipe on pinterest."  Hey!  That's where I found the recipe I wanted to try.  "Is it the pumpkin doughnut recipe?"  I asked her.  She said "Yes!"  We laughed and immediately bonded!  But we never did find the pan.  I ended up ordering one on Amazon. 
So here are the doughnuts in the pan hot out of the oven:

And here they are all sugared up:

To make these doughnuts mix all the following ingredients in a mixer bowl on low:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée (canned pumpkin)
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, or 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus a heaping 1/4 teaspoon each ground nutmeg and ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 t. cloves

Add 1 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoons d All-Purpose Flour until the batter is smooth.
Spray the doughnut pan with Pam and fill the doughnuts 2/3 full .  Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes.  Let cool for several minutes and then shake in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
