Baked pumpkin donuts

There is no better way to start a day, than with these pumpkin spice donuts! They are really soft, fluffy and so tasty. 

Pumpkin spice donuts are one of our favourites! They are soft, fluffy, light and absolutely delicious. With moist texture and delightful pumpkin and cinnamon flavour are the perfect dessert or even breakfast.

And the best thing about them is, that they are baked in the oven. They are healthier version of fried donuts and you can enjoy them without any guilt. We prefer making baked donuts because they taste like a cake, are healthier than fried ones and are also so easy to make.

What makes them even more amazing is this delicious tahini cinnamon glaze. These flavours get together so well. We could eat these for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Obsession is real!

This is a perfect homemade recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth. You need to try them! If you don’t have a donut pan, it’s about time you got yourself one, because we’re sure that you’ll be baking a lot of these once you try them.

We are obsessed with all kinds of donuts and if you are too, you can also check our chocolate vanilla donuts that we make in an air fryer, yeast donuts baked in oven or Berliner donuts.
