For the donuts:

  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

For the maple glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract


For the donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a donut pan with non-stick spray.
  • Add the milk, oil, egg, and pumpkin to a mixing bowl and beat until well combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix to combine.
  • Spoon or pipe mixture into the donut pan and bake for 8-10 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  • Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

To glaze:

  • Place a cooling rack on a baking sheet.
  • Whisk together all of the ingredients for the glaze.
  • Dip the tops of each donut into the glaze and place on the prepared cooling rack to cool for 10 minutes to let the glaze set.



Maple extract isn't strictly necessary, but it does give the glaze a more pronounced maple flavor than syrup alone will.
