Pumpkin Mummy Mini Donuts


Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin Mummy Mini Donuts are so yummy! I’ve already told you how much I love Fall and making Halloween treats. The sugar and spice and everything pumpkin fill the air. The cool crisp days and the first snow of the season. It’s currently snowing outside and this just makes me want to bake. It always does for some reason! Turn on the warm oven, nonchalantly measuring ingredients and mixing the batter while watching the snow gently falling on the ground…maybe licking the bowl and spatula! That’s always a must in my book! I just have to make sure at least some of it makes it to the oven! I’m sure some of you can relate.

These mini mummy pumpkin donuts are always a hit. Being bite size makes it perfect for popping one right after another into your mouth. They’re that delicious. And they’re extra cute, spooky cute! Make sure you make a lot of these yummy treats because they go fast! My family can clear the platter in 5 minutes!

To make these mummies, I use my go to recipe for pumpkin bread. My mom introduced me to this recipe and I have never looked for another. It makes delicious mini pumpkin donuts and I like to dress them up like mummies with a simple powdered sugar glaze.

I simply make the pumpkin bread recipe and use a donut maker. It’s like a waffle iron, but made to make donuts.

Purchase one below! I love it. It’s just so easy to use. Kids love them and they’re great for parties. So fun for year round food fun!

Nostalgia Electrics Mini Donut Maker

Fill the donut slots till the bottom half is full. Close the lid and wait for some cute little donuts to bake up. It doesn’t take but a minute or two. Little donut pans are also available. Just fill and bake in your oven.

Once your donuts are made and cool it’s time to ice them to look like mummies!

To make your glaze, simply add all your ingredients into a bowl and mix till incorporated. I first make it thinner to dip the donut. I like a white background, but you can totally skip this step if you don’t mind dark spots peeking through. Then add some more powdered sugar to my glaze to make it really thick. Next, put it into a pastry bag and cut a small hole at the end. Zig zag the bag over the donut to make it look like the linen that wraps a mummy. Color the rest of the icing to make the eyes. I prefer two tone eyes, so mix up two spooky colors.

If you’re not into pumpkin, these mini donuts can be made with just about any quick bread or cake recipe. Even use a boxed cake mix if you’re strapped for time. Make them your own! They’re so delicious and cute at the same time!
