Maple Glazed Pumpkin Donuts

Maple Glazed Pumpkin Donuts I am finally home. Sounds as if I wanted to come home! Who wants to leave family in England and traveling around Europe? Not me! But I can’t lie I do like to come home to my everyday life, and everytime I come home from a trip I feel as if it is a fresh start. I will start to exercise, wake up earlier, eat healthier, organize my time better…etc! I love it Maple Glazed Pumpkin Donuts It was only natural that the first thing I wanted to do when I got home was bake. But unfortunately with my mom and dad leaving two days later and me having to go back to work I wasn’t able to bake until the weekend. And since it’s September and all (even though we have had a massive heat wave in So Cal) pumpkin had to be coming soon, right?! I won’t lie I bake with pumpkin all year round but once September hits I feel the NEED to bake lots of pumpkin treats! Maple Glazed Pumpkin Donuts I have also been craving maple, maple anything. And since maple is such a wonderful warm fall ish flavor I thought it would compliment my pumpkin donuts quite nicely, and of course I was right ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maple Glazed Pumpkin Donuts ย  I whipped these donuts up Saturday morning, really easy and quick breakfast. I took some over to my favorite neighbors and they responded “Those were BOMB.COM” thanks Syd ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will have to agree, I absolutely loved how simple and quick these were. Pumpkin and maple belong together, in fact I have another maple and pumpkin recipe coming soon. Hope you enjoy these Maple Glazed Pumpkin Muffins ๐Ÿ™‚ย

  1. These look so gorgeous. I’ve always wanted to make donuts but I haven’t got around to it yet. Hm, to be honest… perhaps because I’m a little intimidated? For some reason, donuts are kinda in the holy grail of soft, fried spongy deliciousness for me. I’m a little scared of tragic disappointment. Pathetic, I know. I should try your recipe… sounds delicious (I need to track down some pumpkin pie spice)!

  2. One of the ingredients is “1/2 vegetable oil.” One half what? How many doughnuts does this make? It looks great, so I can hardly wait to make them!

  3. HI! I just made these tonight, and I probably should’ve clarified BEFORE I made them, but when you say maple syrup, do you mean like put on your pancakes maple syrup?

    I’m so excited to try these in the morning!! Hooray!! Thanks for posting this!!

    1. Sorry for the late response Chelsea, but yes maple syrup like you use on pancakes! I used 100% pure maple syrup. Hope this helps and that you liked the donuts, we loooooooved them!

  4. Holy Hallelujah! I had all the ingredients and finally got a donut pan. These donuts were nothing short of divine! I didn’t have maple extract so I made a cream cheese frosting instead. (1/2 stick melted butter, 1/3 of a box of cream cheese, 1/4 tsp vanilla, approx 3/4 cup powdered sugar, and a little splash of heavy cream or milk. The first set was devoured in just a few short minutes and the second set is about to come out of the oven. Hopefully, they make it to breakfast tomorrow morning! Thanks for a fabulous recipe!
