Homemade Pumpkin Cake Doughnuts
Mallory Staley, Pastry Chef at 9 Restaurant in New York City, makes a savory pumpkin cake doughnut, instead of traditional yeast ones because it "provides a better texure and I feel like it's not as fatty — even though I know that's silly to say." Her doughnuts are inspired by the season; she does a blueberry cake doughnut with a milkshake on the side during the warmer months.These spiced treats are fast and easy to make at home. If you need advice along the way, check out this slideshow of the doughnut-making process for some helpful tips and visuals. Enjoy! — Yasmin Fahr

Plain Cake Doughnut
Brace yourself for an unbelievably adorable, moist, and perfectly sweet cake donut that will leave you breathless and endlessly happy. We’re going to bake them, not deep-fry them! If you’re OK with sugar, this should be your go-to recipe, as it yields a fantastically crispy outside that secures the light, pillowy inside. Click here to see Baking with Babycakes.

Vanilla Sugar Doughnuts
Do whatever you have to do to convince yourself to make these doughnuts from Joy Wilson’s cookbook, Homemade Decadence. Maybe you have to convince yourself that you have the time. Maybe you have to talk yourself into working with yeast. Maybe you have to coach yourself through working with a pan of hot oil. Pep-talk yourself right into doughnut making, because the end result — the part where you get to eat a warm, sugar-coated doughnut fresh from the fryer — makes the doughnut-making journey worth it 10 times over.

Baked Current Doughnut Recipe
These artisan baked doughnuts are from Little T Baker's Tim Healea in Portland, Oregon. Not only is a fryer unnecessary to create delicious, homemade doughnuts, but Healea also has a few simple tricks up his sleeve that make them even better. Brushing with butter before and after baking is just one example!

This is a very easy preparation for what I find to be an addictive pleasure. A quickly made dough called pâte à choux — the dough used to make cream puffs — is loaded with diced apple, fried, and rolled in cinnamon sugar. The doughnuts make a wickedly good start to the day and also a surprisingly easy and impressive passed dessert after dinner.
