Today's recipe is quite amazing!

If you're looking for a sweet fall breakfast, these donuts are for you.

This recipe does take some time, with the dough rising, but after you get all the prep done and the donuts fried, the end result is SO worth it.

The sweet pumpkin cream cheese filling is simple to make and so lovely with each bite of the fluffy donut. The sugar and pumpkin pie spice topping adds a delicious, crunchy taste and texture.

You'll want to make these for a fall weekend breakfast, breakfast on Thanksgiving morning or if you love pumpkin like I do, make them for breakfast any time of the year.

Be prepared to be addicted and enjoy every bite!

Fried Bismarck Donuts with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Filling

Yield: 8 donuts
Author: Hot Eats and Cool Reads
Prep time: 2 HourCook time: 15 MinTotal time: 2 H & 15 M

Ingredients

  • For the pumpkin filling:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • For the donuts:
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 3 – 3 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • ½ cup granulated sugar for coating
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice for coating

Instructions

  1. Pumpkin filling:
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth.
  3. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Donuts:
  5. In a microwave safe bowl, heat the milk in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Add the yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Stir gently to combine and let it rise for 5 minutes.
  6. To a large stand mixer bowl, (or a large bowl, if using a hand mixer with a dough hook), add 2 cups of flour, 4 tablespoons sugar plus 2 teaspoons sugar and salt. Stir to combine. Add eggs, yeast mixture and vanilla. Knead over low speed for 2 minutes to combine.
  7. While mixing, add the butter slowly, 1 tbsp at a time.
  8. Gradually add the remaining 1 cup of flour and more if needed. Knead until soft and smooth. Transfer to a floured surface and knead for 5 more minutes.
  9. Add the dough to a greased bowl covered with a clean cloth and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  10. With floured hands, remove the dough from the bowl gently and roll to ½ or ¾ inch thickness. Cut into rounds using a 3 ½ inch floured dough cutter.
  11. Reroll scraps as needed. Add rounds to a parchment paper tray and cover with a cloth. Let it rise in a warm area for 40 to 50 minutes more until doubled in size.
  12. When ready to fry, add 2-3 inches of oil to a heavy bottomed pan at medium heat. Fry donuts for 1-2 minutes each side until golden brown, turn and repeat.
  13. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
  14. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons pumpkin spice, or more to taste, to a large bowl and mix. Add warm donuts and toss to coat. The sugar mix will stick better to the donuts when hot and some oil is still on it.
  15. Add the refrigerated pumpkin filling to a piping bag fitted with a ¼ inch round tip. Pierce each donut horizontally through the center and gently swirl to widen the hole. Squeeze piping bag to fill donut with pumpkin filling.
  16. Notes:
  17. This recipe takes time to rise the dough and the ingredient quantities need to be followed to work. It’s important to let the dough rise twice, per recipe directions.
  18. Do not fill your frying pan with too much oil otherwise you will not get the line in the center.
  19. Coat the donuts in the sugar and pumpkin spice mix when they are still hot to make sure it will stick to it.
  20. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.
