Pumpkin Dulce De Leche Baked Doughnuts

Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Doughnuts | these pumpkin spice doughnuts are filled with dulce de leche! Recipe from Bakerita.com I think I’m onto something. You see that doughnut up there?

It’s filled with dulce de leche. A thick caramel ribbon baked right into the middle of a doughnut. A tunnel of melty, gooey, dulce de leche, if you will. I’m thinking it’s the best kind of tunnel ever.

But…then I think of all the other options that this doughnut-making methods allows for. Nutella in a chocolate doughnut? Cookie butter in a vanilla doughnut? So many options. I’m thinking this doughnut pan is going to be a getting a lot of use.

Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Doughnuts | these pumpkin spice doughnuts are filled with dulce de leche! Recipe from Bakerita.com The process is of filling a doughnut with gooey goodness is pretty simple: 1) make your doughnut batter, 2) pipe a layer of batter onto the bottom of each doughnut pan, 3) pipe a thinner layer of your filling over that, 4) cover with your batter, 5) bake, 6) devour.

Everyone will be impressed and wonder how the heck you did it…and it’s really deceptively easy. Ziploc bags are your best friend! I used two small ones and it worked perfectly to dispense the batter and filling.

Now, I know not everyone has a doughnut pan. I didn’t either, but I wanted to experiment with some baked doughnuts, so I ordered one for pretty cheap. This pan is only $6-7 dollars and does the job perfectly.

Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Doughnuts | these pumpkin spice doughnuts are filled with dulce de leche! Recipe from Bakerita.com The important part: how they taste. These doughnuts are different from traditional fried doughnuts, and they have a cakier texture. They taste pumpkin-y, and lightly spiced, while still being super soft and not at all dry. The sweet creaminess of the dulce de leche in the middle of the doughnut is the perfect complement to the light spices, and the drizzle on top ties it all together.

These really are simple to throw together quickly and are sure to impress anyone who has the chance to eat them. They’re the perfect fall sweet fix, and I do hope you love them!

Pumpkin Dulce De Leche Baked Doughnuts

Yield: 6 doughnuts

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup dulce de leche

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 ºF. Spray a doughnut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, stir together all purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, spices, salt, and baking soda. Add pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, and butter. Stir mixture together until combined into a thick batter. Place batter into a Ziploc bag.
  3. Place dulce de leche into a Ziploc bag as well. Make a small snip at the corner of the bag containing the batter and fill each doughnut mold about 1/3 full with batter. Pipe a thin circle of dulce de leche over the batter, keeping it away from the sides of the pan. Pipe more of the batter on top of the dulce de leche, covering it completely and filling the doughnut pan most of the way full.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until donuts spring back when touched, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, and then remove to let cool completely on a wire rack. Once cool, drizzle with remaining dulce de leche.

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread - sweetened only with bananas! Recipe at Bakerita.com

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread - sweetened only with bananas! Recipe at Bakerita.com I originally was not going to post this recipe on Bakerita, not only because I already have way too many banana bread recipes on this site, but also because 80% of them include chocolate in some way. Oops. #sorrynotsorry

But…after I made it, and it got devoured within mere hours, with everyone having no idea it was grain-free and no sugar added (besides the chocolate), I decided it needed to be posted. Also: that’s why my pictures are sorta lame. Wasn’t really planning on posting them, but here we are. And YEAH – this is no sugar added. This banana bread is sweetened only with bananas. Of course, I ruined the sugar free thing by adding chunks of chopped chocolate (so much better than chocolate chips guys – try it), but who can resist melted chocolate chunks floated around their banana bread?!?
