Yes, you heard it right! Glazed with maple goodness, these little bites of heaven are bound to make your taste buds dance with delight.
To start baking the perfect pumpkin spice donuts, you need to gather the following ingredients:
For the donuts:
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 tsp baking soda
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
– 1/4 tsp ground ginger
– 1/2 cup brown sugar
– 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
– 1/4 cup milk
– 1/4 cup vegetable oil
– 1 large egg
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the maple glaze:
– 1 cup powdered sugar
– 1 tbsp maple syrup
– 2 tbsp milk
Now that you have everything you need, let’s get to baking!
Start by preheating the oven to 350°F and greasing a donut pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, pumpkin puree, milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract until well combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix the batter.
Next, transfer the batter into a piping bag or a large ziplock bag with the corner snipped off. Pipe the batter into the donut pan, filling each mold about 3/4 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the donuts are golden brown and spring back when touched.
While the donuts are baking, prepare the maple glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, maple syrup, and milk until smooth and runny.
Once the donuts are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. When the donuts are cool, dip each one into the maple glaze and place them back on the wire rack to set.
Voila! Your baked pumpkin spice donuts with maple glaze are ready to be enjoyed. Indulge in their warm and comforting flavors and savor the taste of fall.
Baked pumpkin spice donuts with maple glaze are not just a delicious treat but also a perfect way to celebrate the season.
