Making Baked Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes
Baked pumpkin spice donut holes are a delicious and easy fall treat that are perfect for breakfast or as a sweet snack. These donut holes are made with pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and plenty of other spices to add flavor. The donut holes are then coated in a glaze made with powdered sugar and more pumpkin spice for an extra pumpkin-y kick.
Gather All of the Ingredients
Before you begin to bake the donut holes, be sure to gather all of the ingredients you need for the recipe. This includes cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, brown sugar, white sugar, butter, pumpkin puree, and eggs. You will also need all-purpose flour, milk and a dash of salt for best results! Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, preheat your oven to 350 degrees before mixing everything together to form your dough.
Preheat the Oven and Prepare The Muffin Tin
Once your dough is ready, it's time to prepare the mini muffin tin for baking. Grease your pan with a tablespoon of butter or non-stick cooking spray. Then, spoon 1 tablespoon of the dough into each mini muffin cup to form the donut holes. Place the tray in your preheated oven at 350 degrees and bake for around 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Be sure to keep an eye on them as they bake so that they don't overcook!
Mix Together the Batter
Begin by combining the dry ingredients together in one bowl until evenly dispersed. This includes flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. In another bowl whisk together the wet ingredients - eggs, sugar, milk, pumpkin puree and melted butter. Once combined add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until completely blended. It should form a dough-like consistency. If it is too sticky you can incorporate a little extra flour as needed.
Bake for 8-10 Minutes
Grease a donut hole pan and scoop the pumpkin spice dough into each cup, filling them only halfway. Place the tray in an oven preheated to 350F and bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden. Lastly, remove from oven and carefully release the warm donut holes onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool slightly before glazing with your favorite icing. Enjoy!
Glaze and Enjoy!
Now comes the fun part: glazing! In a small bowl, combine 1 cup (125 g) confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla. Mix all ingredients until fully combined. Dip each donut hole into the glaze mixture until completely covered. Place the coated donut holes back onto the cooling rack to set before serving.
