Pumpkin Drop Donuts

Makes about 20 small donuts 

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground cloves
1/3 cup sugar
Grated peel from 2 oranges
1 cup pumpkin, fresh or canned
1 egg
¼ cup olive oil
¾ cup milk

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar & orange peel. In a small bowl beat together egg, oil, milk, orange peel, sugar & pumpkin. Add this to the dry ingredients. 

Heat oil in a heavy pan to approx. 350 degrees or medium high, just hot enough that the donuts sizzle and fry right away. Drop teaspoons full into hot oil and fry. Cook them for a minute or two on each size.  Remove, and let dry on paper towels or a cooling rack. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar or roll in cinnamon sugar.
