Hi! I am Elizabeth Ann of Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box!

I love spending time in the kitchen, cooking and baking for others, and I ADORE home-cooked meals with lots of friends and family around the table!
I have truly enjoyed getting to know sweet Meg through "blog land!" She is such an encourager and leaves the most thoughtful comments! Today we are swapping "fall recipes" and I am sharing Baked Pumpkin Donuts with Maple Cinnamon Glaze! Enjoy! 


Baked Pumpkin Donuts with Maple Cinnamon Glaze 
Yield: 12 doughnuts
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Maple-Cinnamon Glaze
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons milk
Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350F. Prepare a doughnut pan by spraying with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Set aside.
In another bowl, cream together the brown sugar, butter and pumpkin. Add in the eggs, mix well, then mix in the vanilla. Stir in the reserved dry ingredients.
Place the mix in a large zip-top bag. Cut off the corner and pipe into the doughnut pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, then remove from pan and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, make the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, maple extract, cinnamon and milk.
When the doughnuts are cool, dip them in the glaze. Return to the wire rack to allow the glaze to set.
