I just love the Kitchen Collection store that resides in the outlet mall across the stree.  I bought the donut tray for $10.  I don’t care about fried dough but DH loves them.  To make both of him happy I bought 1 tray so I could bake him one of his favorite indulgences-but the recipe makes a dozen.

Here's the recipe I made with my two older grandsons:

Maple-glazed baked pumpkin donuts

Ingred. for donuts:

2 C AP or White wheat flour
2 tsps. powder
2 tsps. pumpkin spice (I just did my own w/ cinnamon, ginger and allspice)
1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 C pureed pumpkin
2/3 C br. sugar
1/4 C oil
2 eggs
1/2 C milk of your choice (we're dairy-free here so I used almond)

Glaze:

1-1/2 C confectioner's sugar
3 tbsps. pure maple syrup
2 tsps. milk
pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350 and grease donut pans
whisk dry ingredients together until blended.
In mixing bowl beat pumpkin, sugar and oil until smooth.  beat in eggs.  add flour and milk in alternately.  start and end w/ flour mix.  spoon or pipe batter into pans about 3/4 full.  bake 9-11 minutes or until they spring back when lightly touched.  cool on rack in pans for 5 minutes.  while they cool stir the glaze and pour into a pie plate sprayed w/ oil.  carefully dip tops of donuts into glaze and return to rack to let glaze set.  

I let the boys "decorate" with some sprinkles.  Steve declared them a hit and I had to stop Aidan from inhaling a third!

Another tip-I used a gallon ziploc bag to pipe the batter.  I opened it up in the bowl that held the flour  and then just snipped the end off to have about a 1" opening.
