Pumpkin Donuts with Sugar Glaze Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Fall is here and when you think of Fall your think pumpkins. There is something so special about a warm fresh made donuts – how it melts in your mouth and pretty much the yummiest thing on earth! These pumpkin donuts with sugar glaze is really something special. The donut is not overly sweet but the sugar glaze really adds another layer. If you do not know how to make a sugar glaze I am going to show you ( it is so simple!) .


It is important to use REAL pumpkin puree when making these donuts. You might notice that there is no oil in this picture that is because I baked the donuts — I have a mini donut maker — but you can always fry these babies ( vegetable oil 2 inches at 350 degrees)

You can easily make these gluten – free by using gluten – free Bisquick and gluten – free flour
