It's Pumpkin Season and I am all about bringing new creative recipes to life. These adorable Pumpkin Spice Acorn donuts are a huge hit. I have made them 3 times now, once to test them, then the very next day for breakfast. Then my grandkids were over and all wanted me to make them again. They are so good, they will ask over and over for you to make them. The best part is you can double the batch, freeze a bunch and pull them out when your ready to decorate and serve.
What you will need: Makes 24 Pumpkin Spice Acorn Donuts / 35-45 Minutes Total
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground allspice
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¾ cup pumpkin puree
½ cup whole milk
½ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup canola oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Glaze for the Pumpkin Spice Acorn Donuts
4 cups Confectionery sugar
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
10-12 tablespoons whole milk or heavy cream
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly spray a mini muffin pan
Use a large mixing bowl and combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, baking powder and salt.
Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until all combined.
Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin tray. (you can use a pan and keep them in balls, I just find this way cooks them better)
Place the pan into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until a light golden brown.
Make the icing by combining all the ingredient until smooth.
pour chocolate sprinkles into a bowl
When the donuts are done baking, cool them off for about 2 minutes. Once cooled, roll into the icing, use a small fork to flip around. Once coated, use the fork to coat one side of the donut hole with the sprinkles and set sprinkle side down on the parchment paper.
One the donuts and sprinkles have set, dip half the pretzel into the icing and then into the donut hole, set aside until all are done.
Serve and Enjoy!
This is one that your entire family will enjoy, but also one I would make for myself with a tall glass of milk or a nice cup of coffee and enjoy and entire plate of with zero guilt.
