With their pleasing texture, tender bite, and scrumptious pumpkin flavor, these Gluten-Free Pumpkin Donuts will be a new favorite in your house this fall. Not to mention your house will smell amazing – but that’s just an added bonus.
My friend Brianna from Flippin Delicious recently told me that I was the queen of donuts. I don’t know if I’d go that far, but I do like to create donut recipes that are simple and delicious.
And as most of you know, my girls and I eat donuts on Fridays, so I’m constantly trying new donut recipes for us to enjoy (and for you to enjoy).
I was searching through my recipes the other day and I realized I didn’t have a recipe for pumpkin donuts.
How could I not?
Pumpkin donuts are one of my favorite types of donuts and they’re the donut of choice (well, in our house) during the fall months.
Did I create one and not share it with you? Did it get lost in the archives somewhere?
BUT… no recipe for Gluten-Free Pumpkin Donuts. At least, not that I’ve typed up.
Well that’s where the fun began.
My girls and I tested several batches of Gluten-Free Pumpkin Donuts and loved every bite during the taste testing.
One of the days we tested recipe I ate more than one donut.
I won’t disclose how many I ate.
I have no interest in breaking the world record for how many donuts can be eaten in one sitting and I’d like to reserve my reputation for knowing my limits here.
These donuts are pretty tasty though and it is hard to eat just one.
They’re moist, and tender (can you see the one in the picture above bending a little, yeah – they’re super flexible and won’t crumble under pressure), and have the perfect amount of pumpkin pie spice to round out the pumpkin flavors.
This recipe makes 12 donuts.
They freeze well, so you can store any leftovers in the freezer and reheat when ready.
I use this affordable Wilton Donut Pan(affiliate link) when I make donuts.
In fact, I have two for recipes like this, that make 12 donuts.
And if you’re not a fan of any of those then maybe you’re not really a donut person. Just something to think about (just kidding).
