Fall has arrived! (At least for a little bit. . .) We went running in 60 degree weather yesterday and it felt so good! No instant sweating, no choking humidity. . .just crisp, cool air. Definitely excited about more cool runs ahead.

Equally exciting is the realization that my house won’t heat up when the oven is on for more than 10 minutes.

That is something to celebrate! With donuts, of course!

These easy, baked Pumpkin French Toast donuts have all the flavors of french toast! Complete with streusel pieces and an irresistible maple glaze!


For the Donuts

  • 1 Cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup milk (soy milk or almond milk would work)
  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Streusel Pieces

  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, cold

For the Glaze

  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup butter
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 Cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugars, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir in milk, pumpkin, eggs, butter, and extracts until just combined.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together all ingredients for the streusel pieces except butter. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, mix the butter in with your fingers and create bigger chunks of streusel.) Stir streusel into donut batter.
  4. Pour batter into a pastry bag or a plastic zip top bag with the corner cut off. Fill each donut cavity about 1/2 full.
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges just start to turn light golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool for 2 minutes before removing from pan.
  6. While donuts are cooling, prepare glaze by melting together sugar and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 2 minutes. Add milk and boil for another minute. Add confectioner's sugar and maple extract and stir until smooth.
  7. Keeping heat on low, carefully dip each donut in glaze to cover tops. You may need to stir glaze occasionally to keep it from hardening.
  8. Allow glaze to harden before serving.
