Baked Pumpkin Timbits

This is a sweet fall treat that everyone loved!
In Canada, these are known as timbits, but in other places these are known as "Donut Holes" - regardless they are delicious!
I made these in cake pop moulds, but you can also use mini muffin tins.
This recipe is from Two Peas and Their Pod.

1 ¾ cups of all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon of nutmeg
½ teaspoon of allspice
1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves
1/3 cup of canola oil
½ cup of brown sugar
1 egg
teaspoon of vanilla extract
¾ cup of canned plain pumpkin
½ cup of milk

4 tablespoons butter, melted
2/3 cup of granulated sugar
tablespoons of cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350°F

Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.

In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and milk until it is smooth.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, little by little, until combined.

Divide the batter evenly into a small muffin tin, or cake pop moulds. 

The cake pop moulds should be filled a little over 3/4.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Once the timbits or mini muffins are cooked, melt the butter in one bowl, in another bowl, mix together the sugar and the cinnamon.

Roll the timbits in the butter, and then into the sugar cinnamon mix.

Serve warm or room temperature.

Makes approximately 24.

Apple Fritter Rings

In elementary school, every October our school had a fall harvest festival, and our secretary would make apple fritter rings and they were the best thing ever. 
This year I finally learned how to make them!

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar
3/4 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 cups of milk
4 teaspoons of vegetable oil, plus 2 cups for frying
2 eggs
2 cups of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons of salt
4 medium tart apples (like granny smith)


Wisk milk, 4 teaspoons of oil and eggs together.

Stir in flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, baking powder and salt.

Cut, core and peel the apples into apple rings.

Combine ½ cup sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and place to the side.
In a large skillet, heat 2 cups of oil (until it reaches 375oC with a candy thermometer, or test with a little drop of the batter).

Coat the apple rings in batter, and fry until they are golden, flipping them over to make sure they cook evenly.

Transfer onto paper towel lined plate.

Place the fritter rings in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat them.

Serve immediately.

Makes approx. 20-25 fritter rings.
