Pumpkin Donuts Recipe
It appears that fall is finally on it’s way here in Sacramento. We are expecting rain the next few days and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I am SO over the summer. I’m celebrating with these fabulous Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts with Maple Glaze. These babies just scream fall, in the nicest possible way.
I realized the other day that as much as I adore donuts, I have a whopping ONE donut recipe on my site. Whaaattt?? Clearly a situation that needs to be remedied STAT.
Baked Pumpkin Donuts
These donuts are baked and that’s become my favorite donut-making method over the past several years. There is hardly any mess and you can make at least six donuts at a time which is the key to a happy family in my opinion. Nobody likes to wait for donuts around here.
I pipe my batter into the donut pan because I haven’t mastered the art of spooning it in. My donuts always come out lumpy if I spoon it in. Be like me, pipe it, and you won’t have lumpy issues either!
The donuts rest for a few minutes before getting dipped into the most glorious maple glaze ever. Like seriously, EVER.
The glaze is fabulously thick so there’s no need to double-dip. That is, unless you want to. If so, by all means. I, for one, never say no to more maple goodness. Never…
This donut is bursting with pumpkin flavor. Made with pure pumpkin, tons of pumpkin spice and pumpkin creamer, it’s about as pumpkin-y as you can get. I also used the creamer in the maple glaze for a bit more pumpkin pie spice flavor. Unforgettable.
If you don’t have access to pumpkin spice creamer, milk, half and half or heavy cream are all great substitutions.
The pumpkin puree does its magic in these donuts, keeping them perfectly moist and flavorful.
I love how easy these donuts are to make and they could not be any tastier. I can tell we’ll be enjoying these donuts for the next several months!
