I can’t say I’m a raving fan of donuts, but when cute little images of homemade donuts kept popping up on my Instagram feed, I was intrigued.  Coupled with a sale on doughnut pans at William Sonoma, it was like a sign – Neelam make donuts – in my head it sounded like Homer Simpson.  So naturally I obliged and made Pumpkin Donuts, ’tis the season after all!
