Baked Pumpkin Donuts with Cinnamon Glaze

Make these Baked Pumpkin Donuts for a weekend breakfast treat or a fun dessert. Enjoy them plain or with an easy cinnamon glaze.

Hi friends!

I originally shared this donut recipe way back in 2010 and they’re still a household favorite so I figured they were worth sharing again!. They’re quick, easy and they allow me to use my mini donut pan, which is totally adorable. Hubby is a huge fan of these donuts and requests them at least every Fall. But don’t be fooled, they’d be great any time of year. I haven’t tried making these in a full-size donut pan but I’d imagine it would work just fine!

The glaze is super simple to make, so it’s best to wait to whip it up until just before you’re ready to serve them. Trying to store them with the glaze on can turn into a bit of a sticky mess.

Ready to give them a try? Here’s the recipe:
