  • 2 teaspoons sea salt

  4. In your mixer's bowl beat together vegetable oil, eggs, sugar and pumpkin puree.

  6. Fill the cavities of the doughnut pans 3/4 full.

If you are using a muffin pan, bake for 25 minutes.

  2. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

In the meantime, prepare the Salted Caramel Glaze

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until completely combined and smooth.
