Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts

It’s no secret that I am a baked donut lover (as evidenced by the amount of baked donut recipes on my blog). These Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts are one of my favorite recipes. The pumpkin puree makes them super moist and the pumpkin spice really brings the flavor.

Donuts

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray your donut mold (I use this one) with non-stick spray and set aside.

Step 2: In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, light brown sugar, salt, baking powder, and pumpkin spice. Make sure there are no lumps of brown sugar.

Step 3: In a separate bowl mix together mix the pumpkin puree, melted butter, and the egg.

Step 4: Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. The batter will be thick.

Step 5: Spoon the batter into the donut pan and place the donut pan on a cookie sheet.

Step 6: Put the donuts into the preheated oven and bake for 15-17 minutes or until they spring back when lightly pressed. I bake them for 10 minutes, turn the pan, and then continue baking.

Step 7: Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes and then remove from the mold and allow to cool fully before glazing.

Glaze

Step 1: In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla, and pumpkin spice. Whisk until fully combined and smooth.

Step 2: If the glaze is too thick add more heavy cream, one teaspoon at a time until it reaches the desired consistency. If the glaze is too thin add more powdered sugar until it reaches the desired consistency.

Step 3: Immediately dip the tops of the donuts into the glaze.
