Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves until well blended with a whisk. Add in the flour and mix until just combined.
  3. Put the batter into a large piping bag or a large ziploc bag.
  4. Pipe the batter into a greased mini donut pan, but only fill it up halfway.
  5. Bake the donuts for 7-9 minutes or until the tops spring back when touched.

  6. While it is baking mix the powdered sugar and maple syrup (start with a tablespoon at a time).
  7. Depending on how thick your syrup is you may need 2 or 3 tablespoons.
  8. You're looking for the consistency of honey.
  9. Dip the tops of the donuts (the bottoms will look pretty because they were in the mold) into the icing and immediately sprinkle chopped pecans over it and let it set to dry.
