  • 2 cups gluten free 1:1 baking flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, cooled (I used non-dairy Earth Balance)
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest


  • 2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons plain, unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a doughnut pan and set aside. In a medium sized bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and spices. In a large bowl, beat together the pumpkin brown sugar and eggs. Next add the almond milk, cooled melted butter, orange juice and orange zest and mix again until combined.
  2. You can either spoon the batter into the doughnut pan or you can place the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a large tip and pipe the batter in. Make sure batter isn’t overflowing. Bake doughnuts until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 12 minutes. Carefully remove doughnuts from the pan and let cool on a rack. Re-peat process with remaining batter. You should be able to get 12 doughnuts from this recipe.
  3. Make the glaze: Add all glaze ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together until you have a smooth glaze with no lumps. Spoon desired amount of glaze over each doughnut and enjoy!
