Baked Pumpkin Donut at the Old Parkdale Inn
National Donut Day is the first Friday in June. We hope you have a chance to try this delicious baked donut recipe. Or request them the next time you visit. Clean up is easier than with a fried version not to mention a bit less guilt-inducing!
Baked Pumpkin Donut
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 tbs. vegetable oil
two tbs. butter, melted
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp. maple extract
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
one tsp. salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your donut shaped baking pan with non-stick cooking spray
In a mixing bowl, add in the pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, melted butter, granulated and brown sugars. Mix on medium until combined.
Add in both of the eggs and maple extract. Mix on medium until incorporated.
Add in the pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, salt and flour. Mix until just combined.
Use a piping bag, or spoon, to fill each donut cup about 3/4 full, making sure the center post is clear. Innkeeper uses a 9 cavity donut silicone baking mold. Bake until the donuts are a light golden brown and spring back when touched, 6-10 minutes. Let cool slightly, flip pan over, glaze or roll in cinnamon sugar
