Notes

  • You can use a mixer to blend wet ingredients, but I found that blender works here great, it will provide the smooth texture without any chunks of butternut squash, however mixer is perfect too. I use my Ninja Blender that I recommend.
  • If you don't have butternut squash you can use same amount of pumpkin or sweet potato.
  • Large or mini donut pan can be used, for larger doughnuts, you might need to bake few minutes longer.
