These baked donuts with canned pumpkin are such a treat! Even if it's not around Thanksgiving, these pumpkins are a great treat. They taste like a light cake donut with a delicous pumpkin and cinnamon flavor.
After having a lot of leftover canned pumpkins one Thanksgiving, we decided to try different pumpkin recipes and these pumpkin donuts are such a hit!
It is surprisingly easy to make baked donuts, but it does require a special donut tray to bake in the oven.
Use a gallon ziploc bag to hold the donut mixture. Cut a small hole (1/2 inch) in the bottom edge of the ziploc bag and use that hole to pipe out the mixture into the donut tray.
If the donuts are slightly dry on the top and the cinnamon sugar mixture isn't sticking to the top, add a splash of water to the top of the donuts to make them grab the cinnamon sugar.
