Baked Pumpkin Donuts

October 26, 2012

Back in the day, which was a Wednesday by the way, I made this recipe. It was incredible.

I’m not much of a donut lover, but I do live with two. So we’ve compromised and every October I make a double batch of the most amazing pumpkin donut muffins that you will ever try. My son started calling them donut holes, and it’s just stuck… but they are more of three holes combined into one.

Before anyone says anything… you’ve probably seen these pictures around the web. They are mine. They were taken in my house, on my camera, with my hand. I just posted the original recipe on my old site, and knew that I had to share them again with all of you!

Pumpkin Donut Muffins
(recipe adapted from Group Recipes)

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 eggs
1 1/2 cup pumpkin Puree
1/4 t. vanilla
1/8 cup milk
1-1/2 cup flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, melted

– Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12 count muffin tin and set aside,

-Combine the sugar, butter, vanilla and pumpkin in the bowl of an electric mixer. Stir to combine. Add the egg.

– Quickly whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Slowly mix into the egg mixture, adding the milk a little at a time until combined. Divide into muffin cups, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

– While the doughnuts are baking, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a large Ziploc. Melt the butter in a shallow dish.

– Allow the doughnuts to cool for ten minutes. Working with one at a time, roll each in butter. Place into the Ziploc, and give it a good shake, making sure the sugar mix coats the entire muffin.

Now… While I know baked donuts are tempting…. Most of you are probably here for another reason!

I recently increased my following by… well… a lot!

To say thank you I wanted to offer you the chance at something in return!

ONE lucky reader will win….. (drum roll please)

    Wow- that is a hard choice. There are so many things to make! I think the first thing I would make with the kitchen aid mixer would be my husbands favorite cookie- chocolate rounds. He is in the military and has been gone since April. We are finally being reunited in November and he says that is one thing he wants me to make first.

    I would make pound cake. I would make loaves of sourdough bread everyday.I am a baker of all kinds of things. I bake every single day for my family of four sons and a sweet husband. Drop biscuits, cookies, pancakes, cornbread. I love to make yeast bread and to knead things by hand, but lately I have wished for some kitchen help. 🙂 This mixer could be my kitchen help, for when I want to make layer cake or pound cake and don’t wish to spend fifteen minutes beating the batter with a whisk.

  • Chris Reply

    October 27, 2012 at 12:48 am

    What would I make? My 10-year old son would probably take dibs and make his “famous” chocolate chip cookies. As for me . . . something fall-ish with pumpkin or apples. The color of the mixer is beautiful.

    I have never owned one of these, but always wished for one. I love to bake for my husband, and all of his fellow Army soldiers, so I would be trying all the recipes that required one if these machines that I was never able to before…a certain fig nut bread is coming to mind! 🙂

    **If I would win this mixer, the first thing I would make would be a trip to the UPS store to send it to my daughter. She is just starting out and loves this color and is just learning all the ins and outs of cooking/baking. A good mixer isn’t just something you can run out and buy so the real treat would be the mixer itself…and then the rest of the treats would follow!! 🙂

    I would have a hard time choosing between two of my favorite family recipes – my mother-in-law’s famous pumpkin bread that my husband grew up with or my mom’s chocolate chip cookies! Cookies may not seem like anything spectacular but it’s what I remember most about baking with my mom when I was little! I would love to win this mixer! My mom gave me her old one (when she inherited my brother’s KitchenAid after he passed away), but in all my 21 years of marriage I’ve never had a new mixer – except a hand mixer that was a wedding gift and is now dying!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    As for the mixer, the first thing I would make is a trip to the UPS store to send this to my daughter. I have my mixer from getting married and it is still serving me well. She is just starting out and just getting a feel for the baking/cooking side of life. What a joy to start out with this kind of mixer…it’s not something you can just run out and purchase when on a limited budget…and then once she gets it…oh the possibilities. 🙂

    I have wanted a mixer my whole life. I have a son with Autism so I try to make most everything I can with fresh products. I also do a ton of canning with my grandma. With all the attachments I can put on the mixer it would open up a new world of cooking in our home and my son could help. I am always the designated cook for every family holiday and I make tons of food for fundraising. My husband is a police office and every week I send in colacky’s. A mixer would change my life.

    If I had a kichenaid mixer I would be in pure heaven. I have Fibromialgia so it is getting harder and harder for me to bake things because I just don’t have the arm strength that I used to. Even using a hand held electric mixer has become a long and painful process. I am known for being the baker in my family, anytime anyone comes over my house I always have some kind of baked good ready to be enjoyed. My greatest fear is that I will unable to do that anymore. I am constantly finding great recipes and tweeking them to make them my own version, and it would hurt my heart if I was unable to be fall in love with a recipe ever again. But I know it’s coming soon.

    I make cookies for everyone for the holidays, having a Kitchen Aid would make the process so much faster. We also make our own pizzq every Friday, and makinf the dough with the mixer would be awesome!

    I would definitely be making skin care products–lotion and body wash! I’ve tried before (and still have all the ingredients), but found that I needed a stand mixer to get the correct textures (guar gum is tricky!). And then I’d bust into the baking world, of course 😉

    First I would make my family some of their favorite oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and then I would make some goat cheese and caramelized onion scones (for me, because I like savory more than sweet)!

    I have been trying to get more into blogging — I’ve been trying to spend time putting my creative energy somewhere that can be fun and produce something wonderful and/or delicious. My boyfriends’ children get so excited when we have a special “project,” but unfortunately I don’t have a lot of materials to do all the things that I would like to do. A mixer would be phenomenal to make cookies, bread, cakes, and frosting… but the first thing I would make are these pumpkin donuts! They look delectable 🙂

    I’m currently on a pumpkin kick so it would definitely be something with pumpkin. Because I’m gluten free I have to make my almost all of my baked goods myself so I do LOTS of baking. I am looking forward to attempting a gluten free version of these pumpkin donuts!

    I most certainly would whip and whip and whip up a batch of homemade divinity! I remember moving into a new (to us) home. Many things were left, two that gave us the most “squeal” of delight were #1 the stand mixer because we knew mom would be able to make us divinity. #2 was the pair of adjustable rollerskate with the key ! and this house had a real sidewalk that we could skate for a couple of blocks on!

    How awesome to have come across your blog!! I’m going to try your pumpkin donuts recipe today possibly!! 🙂 I would most likely make cookies first and foremost…. probably chocolate chip cookies or pumpkin drop cookies or molasses cookies or oatmeal raisin cookies or…. 🙂 I had a kitchen aid mixer before, but it died and have been making our cookies the ‘old-fashioned’ way lately…. which isn’t nearly as fun!

    Hi Jesseca, hope you enjoyed the holidays !! I wanted to make these little gems ever sense before Halloween and just did not get around to it. I am actually glad it worked out this way because, well, during the holidays everyone is so busy baking for everyone and his brother the same old request, which by the way, I love doing 🙂 but this year, I saved a couple of “new” ( to me anyway ) recipes to try. Waiting until yesterday to make these was the ticket. I got to sit back and thoroughly enjoy them (well, one anyway, and man was it hard not to eat two of them 🙂 Thank you for sharing. Happy New Year !!!
