As fall sets in and the temperature begins to drop, warm up with these Baked Pumpkin Pie Donuts, topped with your choice of maple glaze or a spiced sugar coating.
Hashtag food blogger problems. What do you do when you’re not a big fan of pumpkin, yet Type A anxiety takes over your whole existence because your Pinterest account looks like it just threw up an entire pumpkin patch and you don’t want to miss out on being on trend and seasonal with your blog posts and aghhhhhhhh?
Well, apparently you start by writing a run-on sentence. Then you calm down and start thinking about how you can incorporate the orange sludge into something you already love. Something that’s familiar. Safe. And surrounded by a healthy dose of flour and sugar. Ah… I know.
Donuts. Yes, that’s it. Baked Pumpkin Pie Donuts. And everyone loves a donut 🙂
Move over Baked Brown Butter Churro Donuts, Horchata Glazed Donuts, and Red Velvet Donut Holes. Well, actually, don’t go far… I still love you dearly and want you in my life as well. We just need to make room for this gourd-geous (see what I did there? please laugh and encourage me) new donut.
And if you’re like me, you want choices with your donuts. So I’m giving you two ideas to dress up yo’ donuts here.
Pumpkin Spice Sugar.
Maple Pumpkin Spice Glaze.
Hmmm, or I guess you could go crazy and glaze them first and then dip them in the sugar. Now that’s a whole new level of fatness right there. That’s one way to fast track your way to receiving a sincere virtual high five from yours truly.
So there you have it. My very first pumpkin recipe ever on Shared Appetite. Phew… please excuse me while I cross that off my bucket list. And eat a donut.Print
