The October 2010 Daring Bakers challenge was hosted by Lori of Butter Me Up. Lori chose to challenge DBers to make doughnuts. She used several sources for her recipes including Alton Brown, Nancy Silverton, Kate Neumann and Epicurious.

I stuck to something I have done before and went with the pumpkin doughnuts.  Recipe wise, it was very similar to something I have made before (see regular version here, and vegan version), flavor wise I would stick with what I made before.
