I'll start off by saying that this is the only doughnut that tastes even better the next day!
Now, that being said. My first pumpkin recipe for this fall was a success.
Everyone in my house + my friends that tried them loved these cute little doughnuts
not only because of how absolutely adorable they are but because they are sooooo
delicious! They are moist and packed with pumpkin flavor, truly a special treat.
I had been dying to try out my mini doughnut pan for months now, and I am so glad
that I chose this recipe to be my first! So worth it. Can't wait to try out new
baked doughnut recipes.
Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts
slightly adapted from: An Edible Mosaic
- 3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs
- 1 c. pumpkin puree
- 1/4 c. milk
- 2 T. canola oil
- 1 1/2 c. a.p. flour
- 2 t. baking powder
- 1/2 t. salt
- 2 t. pumpkin spice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees & lightly grease a mini doughnut pan.
I used this one. My mom ordered it for me from an avon catalog a while ago.
1. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar and eggs until light.
That should do it, then, stir in the pumpkin puree, milk and canola oil.
2. In a separate medium-largish bowl whisk flour, baking powder, salt &
pumpkin spice. Gradually stir in dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
3. Transfer batter into a pastry bag, pipe batter into prepared pan about 3/4 full.
4. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes.
Transfer to rack to cool completely.
Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Icing
- 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 2-4 T. milk
- 1/8-1/4 t. pumpkin spice
Whisk softened cream cheese and powdered sugar together.
Add 2 T. milk, add more if needed to thin icing. Quickly whisk in
the pumpkin spice.
Dip the doughnuts in the pumpkin spice cream cheese icing,
covering only half top of the doughnut.
* This is the icing I use on my cinnamon rolls, you could also ice
cookies, banana bread and so on.
p.s. I made this pumpkin spice latte this morning to go with these babys
and it was absolutely delicious! It's just like the one you get at Starbucks!
