Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze

I love baked doughnuts. I've gotten away from fried doughnuts since I discovered some great recipes for baked doughnuts. I have several recipes on the blog for baked doughnuts. You can search them.

Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Brush the wells of a full sized Doughnut Pan with Pan Release Mix. (equal parts of Crisco, Vegetable Oil, Flour) I start with 1 C of eau, mixed well and refrigerated in a jar. I always have it available for all of my baking needs.

1/2 C Vegetable Oil
3 Large Eggs
1 1/2 C Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 C 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

In a large mixing bowl:
Mix all ingredients together with a hand mixer.
Beat until smooth.
1 3/4 C + 2 TBS Flour.
Beat until smooth.

Fill the well os the prepared pan 3/4 full.
Bake for 15 - 18 minutes.
Remove the pan to a rack and cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer the doughnuts to the rack and cool completely.

Chocolate Glaze.

1/2 C butter  (1 stick)
1/4 C whole milk
1 TBS light corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla
4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 C confectioner's sugar

In a saucepan, over medium heat:
Whisk Well

Add chocolate and whisk until chocolate has completely melted

Turn off heat and whisk in sugar until smooth. Glaze the doughnuts immediately
To keep the glaze liquid, place the glaze over a pan of warm water while glazing the doughnuts

Allow Glaze to set 30 minutes before serving.

Peace in the Kitchen!
