Pumpkin Spice Baked Doughnuts from *Baked Doughnuts for Everyone* by Ashley McLaughlin + a giveaway via Top With Cinnamon

Soo you may have heard me talking/tweeting/instagramming about my friend Ashley‘s NEW COOKBOOK!!! As if it isn’t cool enough that the book is 100% about doughnuts (dream book, hollaaaaa) but all the doughnuts are baked (not fried) and gluten free! Currently her book is on a blog tour (you can check out the list of other participating bloggers plus extra details about the book here) and TWC is where it’s at today.

Pumpkin Spice Baked Doughnuts from *Baked Doughnuts for Everyone* by Ashley McLaughlin + a giveaway via Top With Cinnamon

It is a beauty of a book with tonnes of gorgeous photos all styled and shot by Ashley herself. It took me a few hours (and two, full read-throughs of the book) to decide which recipe to make for this post – when faced with choosing between Maple Doughnut twists, Cinnamon Coffee Cake Doughnuts, Tiramisu (TIRAMISU!!) doughnuts and Vegan Gooey Chocolate Doughnuts, it’s kind of amazing that I managed to not end up making all of them.

But I had the pumpkin puree out (from other pumpkin food adventures) and was feeling particularly Autumn-y so I knew this recipe for Pumpkin Spice doughnuts was calling my name. Especially when I saw that there was maple syrup and cinnamon in the glaze. You can tell how much I loved the glaze from the fact I ended up completely coating all the doughnuts in it, not just dipping the tops in (whoooops! ;) I have a tendency to deviate from recipe instructions – like how I also ate them when the glaze wasn’t set. The rebellion just makes them taste EVEN better hah).

Pumpkin Spice Baked Doughnuts from *Baked Doughnuts for Everyone* by Ashley McLaughlin + a giveaway via Top With Cinnamon

I have to say that I’ve never made a better baked doughnut ever. They literally tasted like real doughnuts and the glaze did the crakle-y thing that I luuuurve. Plus because they were gluten free, it meant that when I brought the (few…) left overs into school the next day, I was able to share them with people who usually can’t eat things like doughnuts because of wheat.

They pair perfectly with a nice homemade mug (orrrr jar :/ ) of pumpkin spice drip coffee btw, heh heh hehhhh….

The giveaway ends on the 14th of October at 12am (London time), when winner will be randomly selected, announced on here in the Rafflecopter box, and contacted via their provided e-mail address shortly afterwards.

The giveaway is now over. Thank you everyone who entered! 

Good luck!

Notes:

- You can easily make oat flour by grinding rolled oats in a blender or food processor until fine.

- I used a mini doughnut pan as I don’t have a standard sized one – I baked them for 10-12 minutes.

- You can used 2 to 2 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice mix instead of the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and clove.

- make sure your oats or oat flour are certified gluten free, if required

- sweet rice flour can be found easily online – I got mine from amazon here

Pumpkin Spice Baked Doughnuts with a Maple-Cinnamon Glaze (gluten free!)

Serving Size: 8 to 10 standard doughnuts, or 20 to 24 mini dough

from page 50 of the book 'Baked Doughnuts for Everyone', by Ashley McLaughlin

For the Doughnuts:
1/2 cup (60 g) oat flour (see notes)
1/2 cup (70 g ) sweet rice flour
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (76 g) pure cane sugar
1/4 cup (28 g) almond meal
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp ground cloves
2 large eggs
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (88 ml) milk
1/3 cup (82 g) pumpkin purée
2 tbsp (30 g) unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp (28 ml) oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
For the Glaze:
1 cup (120 g) powdered sugar
2 tbsp (40 g) maple syrup
1/2 to 1 tbsp (8 to 15 ml) milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon

To make the doughnuts:

Preheat your oven to 350 F (180 C) and grease your doughnut pan.

Combine the first 12 ingredients (oat flour through to ground cloves) in a large bowl, mixing well. In another bowl, whisk the eggs together, then add the milk, pumpkin purée, applesauce, oil and vanilla. Whisk until well combined.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir with a large wooden spoon until just combined, being careful not to over mix (stop when you no longer see dry flour).

Spoon the batter into the doughnut molds filling to just below the top of each mold, 1/8- to 1/4-inch (3 to 6 mm) from the top. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes (see notes), until lightly golden brown around the edges. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Slide a thin spatula around the edges of the doughnuts to help loosen them out. Then place on a cooling rack and allow to cool fully before topping.

To make the glaze:

Mix the glaze ingredients together until smooth. Add more milk if a thinner consistency is desired.

Invert the doughnut into the glaze (I coated the whole doughnut with glaze), letting the excess drip off, or drizzle the glaze over the doughnuts. Let set until glaze has hardened.

Pumpkin and doughnuts, a deadly combination. Can’t wait to try! Also, my favorite this about fall has to be the aroma in the air of baked goods, the rustle of fallen leaves, and the overall joyous effect it has over me and my surroundings.

Alice October 7, 2013 at 1:04 am

*Shoving everyone aside*
Are those donuts I smell? Donuts? DONUTS!!
To say that I really like donuts would be an understatement…something about the combination of sugar, that round shape, and the satisfying carbiness about donuts just makes them so perfect in my eyes. How could they possibly get more perfect? If I could just make them myself at home!
Well, I guess wishes do come true…
Ashley’s cookbook sounds absolutely delightful so thanks for this giveaway Izy! I’m drooling just looking at my screen and thinking about tiramisu donuts. Be still my heart.

So what’s my favorite thing about fall? The weather! That’s such a cliche but it’s so true! Given that I don’t really get to experience the changing leaves in Southern California, I can at least somewhat enjoy slightly colder days. All the more excuse to drink tons of hot chocolate and load up on tasty carbs (the extra weight is to keep me warm of course…). Also, all the tasty pumpkin flavored things are an added bonus. I have a confession to make though. I’ve never had a pumpkin spice latte before…but let’s keep that just between us, alright? I wouldn’t want all the PSL-obsessed bloggers out there to come hunting me down. On second thought, maybe if they hunt me down, they’ll force feed me a PSL…maybe that wouldn’t be so bad after all?

As you can probably tell, seeing tasty donuts but not getting to eat them induces a massive amount of rambling from me. I’ll go raid my pantry before this takes the format of an essay!

Haley October 7, 2013 at 1:32 am

My favorite thing about fall is not the return of school, nor the pretty leaves, nor the cozy sweaters or the overabundance of squashes and potatoes. It’s not the apple picking, or hot chocolate, or the time spent with family and friends. Fall tends to be my favorite season because it has the most memories, the most nostalgic time of the year. Whether it be blowing out the birthday candles, or the toasty times spent sitting next to the fire, wrapped in a blanket on a chilly night, it’s always nice to sit back with a cup of hot tea and remember once the leaves start to change.

(p.s. your pictures make these donuts look like heaven and i am extremely jealous of the fact that you have such skill and the fact that you get to eat these things)

To be honest, it’s my favourite thing about all the seasons ^_^
Winter – ice blues and sparkly whites, Spring – mint greens and sunny yellows, Summer – rainbow colours because all the flowers come out to play :D

These donuts look absolutely delicious and your photos make them that much better. :) My favorite thing about fall is everything. I love fall! All of the different warm colours, the smell of the leaves and last minute campfires. Pumpkin spice lattes haha had to throw that in there. The weather is so perfectly in the middle, not too warm, not too cold, you know? fall is perfect!

“But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”

Thanks Susan! I’ve tried making them with ap flour instead of the sweet rice flour and they’ve worked just as well a the original (oat flour is really easy to make – I’ve put it in the notes! I’d leave the oat flour in because it does contribute to the texture, and it’s healthier)

I absolutely fell in love at first sight with these! My favourite spices, pumpkin, and oat flour… So I took some frozen pumpkin puree out from the freezer today and got into it. I must admit though the taste and smell are great, the consistency is not as I expected. I don´t know what could have gone wrong, I followed the instructions precisely (weighted all ingredients), but the batter turned out very thin. This was probably also the reason why I couldn´t get them out of the mold… Covered in glaze, they look okay, I´m just sad they don´t look as perfect as yours.
I guess I´ll give it another chance soon. Enjoy the autumn season!

(Maybe a test batch first, wouldn’t want to screw up the birthday doughnuts.) My family hasn’t had doughnuts for around 3 years since we’ve had to go gluten free. I’m looking forward to the test batch preview. I don’t know if anyone else will get any!!

One of the fondest memories of fall was driving through the woods of Vermont during the fall. I was sitting next to our bass playing junkie wearing dark glasses who hadn’t spoken a word in days. He woke up, lifted his glasses and murmured these memorable words. “Oh, this is beautiful.” Replaced his glasses and returned to his stupor.

my favorite thing about fall? Cool days while the sun is still shining. And how everything smells. Sometimes you can smell wood burning during the evenings and the crisp air at night. it’s not too cold but just cold enough to take out your sweater and curl under a blanket. Also, the smell of baking at home! The house is nice and toasty! As a child, i remember dark evenings at home but the house smelling like apples and cinnamon because my mom would make homemade apple sauce.

It was also the time of heavy baking in our house. warm cookies and coffee cakes! scented herbal teas! The smell is the best for me!

I didn’t see a question to answer, but I hope this comment counts: I love doughnuts! Baked, fried, whatever…doesn’t matter. I love them all! Especically *filled* doughnuts! :)

Okay….I saw the question! My favorite thing about Autumn is the cooler weather! And…Halloween, pumpkin carving, scarves, full moons, and hot chocolate!

Pumpkins are what I look forward to in Autumn, but it makes me sad that they are hard to come by throughout the rest of the year.

Izyyyy I made these over the weekend in muffin form. SO DELICIOUS. I brought them to my friend and she adored them!! Even though they were in muffin form, the texture looked the exact same–the sign of an excellent recipe, I think–go Ashley! And not sure if you made up the glaze or not, but the cinnamon hit was genius!

So, has anyone made these doughnuts? I did and they came out heavy and flat like hockey pucks. I realized that there was no additional leavening beyond the eggs so I added 1/4 tsp baking powder and that helped. The batter is a bit bland, even with all the spices. I would up the spices and add more leavener. I would also change some ingredients to round out the flavor, makybe use brown sugar instead of white. Or, a bit of molasses. This recipe is on its way to being great, but for me, it’s not quite there.

I’ve already made these twice since you posted… in one weekend… and am gearing up to make them for a third time! The cookbook is already on my wishlist, I figured since I went out to buy a doughnut pan for the sole purpose of making this recipe I may as well use it some more!

Thanks for the recipe. These were delicious. I made only minor adjustments based on what is available where I live. My daughter and I agree that there is so much flavor in the donuts that plain
icing might be better—though we LOVE the maple-cinnamon glaze.

Plain glaze would be absolutely fine! (But I do looove cinnamon and maple syrup haha) :) glad you liked them!
