Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Stir all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl; add pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, and softened butter. Beat mixture with an electric hand mixer on low speed until combined into a batter; spoon into a donut pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until donuts spring back when touched, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Beat confectioners' sugar, melted butter, water, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth. Dip warm donuts into the glaze and let any excess glaze drip back into bowl before placing glazed donut on prepared baking sheet to cool.

I used this recipe to make doughnut holes with my Nostalgia Cake Pop Bakery. It worked perfectly! The only changes I made were increased the recipe size to serve 18 (didn't want to waste pumpkin puree), substituted the Pumpkin Spice (didn't have it) and altered the glaze. I used 1 tsp allspice, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger. I'm sure it would have been great with plain Pumpkin Spice, I just didn't have it. With my 1 1/2 TBSP scoop leveled out, 8 min baking time, rolled them over and cooked for another 30 seconds, this recipe made about 3.5 dozen doughnut holes with the recipe at 18 servings (a whole 15oz can of pumpkin). For the glaze I did use a reduced amount of milk instead of water and added a couple TBSP of corn syrup. This helps the glaze harden.

This recipe worked great! I was looking for a baked donut recipe and though I didn't have pumpkin on hand I traded out the pumpkin for homemade, chunky apple sauce and it was so yummy! I also used a cinnamon and sugar coating in place of the glaze. They were soft and perfect! I made them for my sisters baby shower and everyone loved them!

Yummy doughnut!! The only problem I had was that no matter how long I baked it for, they were still a little under cooked
