Pumpkin Cake Donuts with Cream Cheese Glaze

I love how pumpkin spice treats just taste like Fall! Plus the flavors go so perfectly with cream cheese  frosting. There is nothing like pumpkin donuts and hot apple cider for breakfast on a chilly Fall morning. 

These donuts are so quick to make, and very easy to eat...too many! ;)

1 Stick plus 3 Tbls softened Butter
2 2/3 Cups Sugar
4 Eggs
1- 15 oz can Pumpkin
2/3 Cup Water
3 1/3 Cups Flour
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Cinnamon
2 Tsp Cloves

Cream Cheese Glaze:
4 oz Cream Cheese melted
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/4 Cup Milk

Heat Oven to 400F. Grease donut pan. 
Blend flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices in a mixing bowl and set aside. 
Mix sugar and butter together. Add eggs, pumpkin, and water and mix until just combined. 
Add flour mixture and mix.
Spoon batter into a ziplock bag, and seal bag. Cut off one corner of the bag and pipe batter in a donut pan. 
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Test with a toothpick or fork to make sure donuts are cooked through. 
Set donuts on a cooling rack and allow to cool. 

To make glaze, beat melted cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk until smooth.
While donuts are still slightly warm, dip each donut in glaze and allow to dry. 

Makes about 2 dozen small donuts.
