Caitlin’s Confections: Maple Glazed, Pumpkin Donuts 

Looking for a quick and easy breakfast food to feed overnight guests staying during Thanksgiving? These pumpkin donuts are just that! Make them a few days in advance and keep them around for when people get peckish.

Pumpkin Donuts 

1 can pumpkin 

1/2 cup vegetable oil 

3 eggs 

1 1/4 cup sugar 

1 3/4 cup flour 

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder 

1 1/2 tsp. salt 

1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger) 

Maple Glaze 

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 

3 tbsp. maple syrup 

3 tbsp. heavy cream 

1. For donuts, mix all ingredients and place in a plastic bag. Cut the corner of the bag and use to fill your donut pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes.

2. For glaze, mix all ingredients in a wide bowl. If needed, add more heavy cream until proper consistency is achieved. However, a thicker glaze is better.

3.  While donuts are still warm, dip one side in glaze and let sit.
