  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Stir all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl; add pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, and softened butter. Beat mixture with an electric hand mixer on low speed until combined into a batter; spoon into a donut pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until donuts spring back when touched, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Beat confectioners' sugar, melted butter, water, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth. Dip warm donuts into the glaze and let any excess glaze drip back into bowl before placing glazed donut on prepared baking sheet to cool.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To make cinnamon sugar donuts, melt 1/4 cup butter and mix together 1/2 cup white sugar with 1 tablespoon cinnamon. When donuts are done baking, dip them in the melted butter, then the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
