Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts with Maple Cinnamon Glaze

Lynn demonstrates how to make baked pumpkin doughnuts with maple cinnamon glaze.  These are super easy and delicious.  Doughnut recipe from shutterbean.

Doughnuts -- Makes 6


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat oven to 325°.  Spray a doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, whisk pumpkin, sugar, egg, oil and vanilla until smooth.  Add the flour mixture with the pumpkin mixture and blend until smooth.

Spoon batter into a large resalable plastic bag.  Cut the corner and squeeze batter into prepared doughnut pan, about 2/23 full.  Bake for 13-15 minutes, until doughnuts spring back when lightly pressed.  Cool in pan on rack for 3-5 minutes, then carefully turn out directly onto rack to cool.

Maple Cinnamon Glaze

  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon maple extract or flavoring
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2-3 Tablespoons milk

In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, maple extract or flavoring, cinnamon and milk until smooth.  

Dip doughnuts in the glaze and place on a rack over a baking sheet so that excess glaze can drip off the doughnut.  Decorate with sprinkles, if desired.
