“Save me the middle of the donut”
My Grandfather would say that during many Sunday family dinners when I was a litter girl. Tim Horton donuts were often on the dessert menu.
What I remember most about my Grandfather is that he always made me laugh… and every Sunday I was sure to “save him the middle of my donuts”!!?
I’m pretty sure if he saw these Pumpkin donuts on a plate, he would not only want the middle of my donut but the entire thing. Enjoy the recipe!!
