Happy 2018 friends. I am slowly getting back into the routine here on the blog. Bear with me. I am still on cookie and Christmas dinner overload. I only wish the season would slow down a little. It is such a magical time of the year. Today is all about pumpkin here on the blog. I know, I know, you’re probably saying that pumpkin is a fall ingredient, but not in this house. Wrong! I stock pumpkin in my pantry all-year long. Gabrielle and AJ both love pumpkin desserts so I like to have a can or two on-hand when needed.

It’s no secret that I love all things pumpkin. You probably get sick of hearing about that during the fall months. But did you also know that I secretly love doughnuts? I pretty much adore them in any form. Doughnuts were always the special treat my parents would buy on Sunday mornings after church. I guess that is when my love affair with them started.

These Maple Glazed Pumpkin Doughnuts are a delicious flavor pairing of pumpkin and maple. These are a baked version and if you ask me, I would much rather bake them than break out a gallon of oil to deep fry. That’s where a handy doughnut pan comes in handy. It’s a simple batter and the recipe takes only about 20 minutes to bake.


I filled a pastry bag with the pumpkin batter to make filling the doughnut pan easier.

After the doughnuts are done baking and cooling. Dip them in a simple maple glaze made with powdered sugar and maple syrup. If you can wait long enough, allow the glaze to dry on a baking rack.

The fam started to grab these babies as soon as I finished glazing them. If you let the glaze dry, it’s a little less messy. But, these Maple Glazed Doughnuts are pretty irresistible. So you are allowed to enjoy them any way you like.
