Ingredients

Donuts:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

  • 2 eggs

  • ¼ cup milk

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

Glaze:

  • 1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar

  • ¼ cup butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Stir all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl; add pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, and softened butter. Beat mixture with an electric hand mixer on low speed until combined into a batter; spoon into a donut pan.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until donuts spring back when touched, 8 to 10 minutes.

  4. Beat confectioners' sugar, melted butter, water, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth. Dip warm donuts into the glaze and let any excess glaze drip back into bowl before placing glazed donut on prepared baking sheet to cool.

Cook's Note:

To make cinnamon sugar donuts, melt 1/4 cup butter and mix together 1/2 cup white sugar with 1 tablespoon cinnamon. When donuts are done baking, dip them in the melted butter, then the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
