Pumpkin Spice Baked Doughnuts
Crisp, cool weather calls for pumpkin spice, am I right? These Pumpkin Spice Baked Doughnuts are full of that pumpkin flavor we’re all craving this time of year. Soft, buttery, cinnamon-sugary…you just can’t beat the flavor and texture of these doughnuts.
The other day while scrolling through Instagram (follow Golden Barrel here), I was noticing doughnuts being featured on several accounts I follow. It inspired me to try my hand at making/baking doughnuts, which is something I’ve not done before. I ordered these pans off Amazon and was super excited to get started. The doughnut pans couldn’t be easier to use–you don’t even need to coat them with non-stick cooking spray.
This recipe really is a simple one. Just one thing to remember is to not overmix the batter, otherwise the doughnut will be tough and not soft inside. I mixed everything by hand as to not overmix. Super simple. You can add what spices you have/like. I happen to not be a huge fan of nutmeg so I chose to not use that, but you’ll find both cinnamon and cloves in my batch. Feel free to also add in allspice if you desire.
For easy control and less mess, I used a piping bag for the batter. If you don’t have piping bags, you can use a Ziplock-type bag. I filled each space pretty full.
Since the pan is non-stick, the doughnuts came out easily. Aren’t they the cutest?
A little melted butter and cinnamon sugar and you’re done. Man, this coating is so delicious and melt-in-your-mouth.
So treat yourself to homemade doughnuts! Whether it’s for a weekend brunch or as an after-school snack, these Pumpkin Spice Baked Doughnuts are sure to satisfy that fall sweet tooth of yours!
