Oh my gosh, Glazed Pumpkin Donuts are to die for. Really. These delectable donuts are everything you want for breakfast, and then some. The recipe includes pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice to boost the flavor. Then they’re dunked in a vanilla glaze and sprinkled with cinnamon before serving. These are truly finger-lickin’ good….as the saying goes.
Back in December, I made several kinds of homemade donuts for John. I wanted him to take them out to his office before everyone started taking vacation time during the holidays. He put out about 75-100 donuts in the employee break room and they were scarfed down in a few hours. Not a drop left. We heard all kinds of wonderful comments about the donuts. I thought it would be a nice treat for them. I plan to do it at least once a month in the future.
I tried to come up with different concoctions of donuts. It was easy to come up with ones for fruit. But I had 10 cans of pumpkin John purchased for 10 cents a piece. I knew I was going to have to try to use up some of that pumpkin. So Glazed Pumpkin Donuts were born. I followed the same basic recipe as my other donuts. But I left out the butter and oil and substituted the canned pumpkin instead. They really turned out awesome.
Glazed Pumpkin Donuts are terrific for fall and winter baking, holidays and certainly for company. The folks at John’s office gave these luscious donuts, two thumbs up. Enjoy.
Glazed Pumpkin Donuts will knock your socks off!
These donuts were given two thumbs up by those who indulged in them at John’s office. 🙂
Glazed Pumpkin Donuts are just what the doctor ordered for what ails ya. Ha!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the donuts.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Stir to combine and set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, combine eggs, sour cream and milk.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Add pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon just until combined. Do not overmix the batter.
Pipe pumpkin mixture into greased donut cavities. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes or until set. (A toothpick inserted in center should come out clean). Allow donuts to cool before adding glaze.
I used these ingredients for the glaze.
Combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk.
Place donuts top side down into glaze.
Set on wire racks. Immediately sprinkle the top of the glaze with cinnamon, as much as desired.
The glaze adds the finishing touch to these donuts. The sprinkle of cinnamon is perfection.
If you enjoy pumpkin in desserts, you’ll love it in donuts.
Glazed Pumpkin Donuts will satisfy any sweet tooth craving you’re having around breakfast time!
