Gluten Free Pumpkin Spiced Pecan Glazed Donuts

For the longest time I've had my new donut pans...but it wasn't until I found a great sale on pumpkin that I decided to give them a try. I made these cake like pumpkin donuts with glaze and pecans. Ohhh were they delicious! So delicious, they didn't last the day with my family.

I did try out my mini donut pan, but found this batter to be too thick to put in a tiny space so I much preferred to use my bigger pan.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Spiced Pecan Glazed Donuts
Makes about 18 regular sized donuts. Adapted from Food by Teva and Pure 2 Raw

2-1/2 cups gluten free flour mix (such as this one)
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup canola oil
1 (14-oz) can pumpkin
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Lightly oil a donut pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, sugar, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt and spices.
Add in the eggs, oil, pumpkin and vanilla. Beat well for two minutes. The batter will be smooth and a little sticky.
Spoon the batter into the donut pan, filling almost to the top. Smooth the tops with wet fingers. Bake in the center of the oven for 18 minutes, until firm but slightly springy to the touch.
When the donuts are cool enough to handle, loosen the sides and remove from the pan. Place the donuts on a cooling rack. Glaze and sprinkle with nuts.

Glazed Pecan Topping

1 Cup pecans, ground

Cinnamon Sugar Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Place on cinnamon sugar glaze into a bowl and stir till combined. Grab a donut and dip into your cinnamon glaze then sprinkle with pecans. Allow to dry.
