Easy Pumpkin Donuts are baked, cooled and topped with a glorious thick maple glaze. These Maple Glazed Pumpkin Donuts are the perfect weekend breakfast treat!
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 every time 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
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!
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 😉
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 😉 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 🙂
