Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts with Pumpkin Spice Glaze

By  | Last Updated:  

Donuts are a treat any time of year, but add pumpkin and spice and I bet you’ll say “nice”! A harvest or Halloween dessert table would probably have a spot for a basket of these. I’d invite them to my party.

Pumpkin Spice Mini Cake Donuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, melt 1 teaspoon butter in the microwave. Remove and let cool.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients: brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, flour, sugar, ground nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, ground cloves, and salt. Using a fork, stir.
  4. Once melted butter has cooled, add beaten egg, vinegar, heaving whipping cream, and vanilla extract. Whisk together.
  5. Add egg mixture to dry mixture in large mixing bowl. Stir well.
  6. Add pumpkin puree to mixture. Stir until all ingredients are evenly combined.
  7. Spray the donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  8. Using a disposable piping bag, fill with mixture. Try to eliminate air bubbles, pushing mixture toward the tip. Using scissors, snip the tip of the piping bag.
  9. Slowly fill each donut cavity halfway full.
  10. Bake first batch of mini cake donuts for approximately 10 minutes. Remove. Let cool. Use a butter knife or spoon to gently release the donuts or turn the pan upside down and gently tap the pan on the counter. They should fall onto the counter top. Watch out or one will probably fall right into your hand, begging to be eaten while it’s warm.
  11. Wipe the donut pan clean and repeat steps 9 and 10.
Pumpkin Spice Glaze

  2. Using a brush or small spoon, add glaze to donuts. Let set for 10 minutes.
  3. Serve with sprinkles, if desired.
