These baked pumpkin doughnuts are crisp on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, and drizzled in maple cinnamon glaze!

Summer is ending, and autumn is creeping up on us, so today I bring you another autumn recipe! Not to mention, my third doughnut recipe. I love me some doughnuts 😉

I baked the doughnuts this time, moderately healthier. I went and purchased a doughnut tin specially.

I love this recipe! For one, they’re baked, so that means I can eat more, right? For two, it’s such a quick and simple recipe, you really can’t go wrong. These doughnuts would be a perfect addition to your Halloween party (or any day throughout autumn). They’ll definitely be a crowd-pleaser. And because they’re baked, these would make a delicious light breakfast, too!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons (28g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup (75g) pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) milk
  • For the Glaze
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups (250g) icing sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/176C. Spray a doughnut tin with cooking spray, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg, pumpkin puree, and vanilla until combined.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt, then stir into the sugar mixture alternating with the milk until combined. Do not overmix.
  4. Spoon the batter into each doughnut cavity and bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and transfer doughnuts to a wire rack to cool for about ten minutes.
  6. For the Glaze
  7. Mix together the ingredients for the glaze in a small bowl. If the glaze is a little too thick, add a splash of milk or as needed to thin it out a little more. Dip the tops of each donut into the glaze and transfer back to the wire rack to let the glaze harden.

Notes

Doughnuts stay fresh wrapped in clingfilm or foil at room temperature for 1 - 2 days. Keep them in the fridge, wrapped, to keep them fresh for up to a week.

    You had me at pumpkin doughnuts! I LOVE pumpkin and look forward to the fall time pretty much for that reason, and I get to wear boots again, but mainly for the pumpkin! I need to get a doughnut pan like that too! I’ve seen them in the store, but wasn’t sure if they were worthwhile. Looks like yours turned out deliciously, so it must work well! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Marsha! Pinning it now! 🙂
