A baked pumpkin cake donut with chocolate milk glaze.
Recipe type: Donuts
Serves: 11 donuts
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ½ cup chocolate milk
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  1. For donuts, combine melted butter, oil, and brown sugar. Add egg, pumpkin, and vanilla and mix well.
  2. Add salt, baking powder, and spice and mix well.
  3. Add flour and buttermilk alternately, mixing just until combined.
  4. Spoon batter into a plastic zipper bag with a corner cut off. Pipe batter into a greased donut pan, taking care not to over fill.
  5. Bake donuts at 350F for 9-11 minutes. Turn donuts out, and let cool.
  6. For glaze, combine milk and sugar. Spoon over cooled donuts. Wait a few minutes, and glaze a second time.
The glaze is quite thin. I had the best luck by glazing once, then freezing for a few minutes, and glazing a second time.
These donuts also taste great frozen!
