Bake (yes bake!) up a batch of these Pumpkin Streusel Donuts today! All the delicious flavors of fall in one breakfast treat!

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE DONUTS:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

FOR THE STREUSEL:

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

FOR THE GLAZE:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Spray donut pan (I use this one) with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar until creamy. Add in egg and vanilla, beat until combined.
  3. Blend in pumpkin puree. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Beat until well combined. Batter will be very thick. Spoon into a large plastic resealable bag. Snip off the corner and pipe into donut pans, filling them about 1/2 full.
  4. In a small bowl, combine streusel ingredients with a fork. Sprinkle generously over pumpkin batter. Press streusel gently to the top of batter (it will fill the donut cavity completely at this point).
  5. Bake in 375 degree oven for about 13-15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and cool in pan for about 5 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
  7. Once cooled, whisk together the glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over cooled donuts. Allow to set about 5 minutes and enjoy!
