You are in for the ultimate treat with my Baked Pumpkin Ice Cream Glazed Donuts! I am trying to keep my composure while writing this intro. I am in love with these donuts, nothing else to say. Well, I will say more. They are soft, baked, topped with a sweet glaze and full of pumpkin spice and vanilla ice cream baked inside!
Now, don’t expect to take a bite and taste the ice cream. It is added more for a perfectly soft bouncy texture and vanilla kick.
Hope you all enjoy my donuts! Yay!!
Prepare The Donut Batter
Start with adding all of your donut ingredients to a large mixing bowl. I started with the flour 🙂
Keep adding….the baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Bring on the sugar and pumpkin.
Add your egg next.
Add a touch of vanilla.
I added 2 Tablespoons of vanilla pudding mix, but have made the donuts without. I like the flavor and texture it brings, but if you don’t have it you can make without.
Add The Secret Ingredient!
Time for the ice cream! Oh yah!
Melt your ice cream for about 30 seconds until just melted and add right to the bowl.
Give her a good mix.
It’ll look just like this. Yum!
Use A Donut Pan For a Healthier Donut
Here’s the donut pan I used. It is by Wilton. I LOVE it.
Bake Your Donuts
Fill your donut pans and time to bake!
Prepare The Icing
When the donuts come out of the oven. Let them cool for 10 minutes then prepare the glaze. Powdered sugar and heavy cream.
Dip Your Cooled Donuts into The Icing
Take your cute baked donut and get it ready to dip.
Oh yah, this is my favorite part.
Soft, delicious and gorgeous!
