Thanks to the man who realized the maple tree sap could be reduced to make the syrup that gives sweet weekend breakfast fantasies. Interestingly, it requires around 10 gallons to make a quart of maple syrup. And what can you do with a quart of syrup (besides drizzle it over your waffles and pancakes)? Here are 25 of our most-loved recipes for sweet and savory made using maple syrup. You don’t require any amount of syrup; often, just a couple of tablespoons are enough to make a dish as delicious as maple syrup can get.
Pumpkin doughnuts baked in the oven are drizzled in a maple glaze and completed with very finely chopped pumpkin seeds. This is a fantastic option for filling your sweet treat craving this season!
One teaspoon of vegetable oil, or as needed
1 cup all-purpose flour
One teaspoon of baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup buttermilk
One large egg
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
Three tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup finely chopped roasted pumpkin seeds
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 to 190 degrees C). Grease a doughnut tray with around one teaspoon of vegetable oil.
Mix flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice cloves, salt, and allspice into a large bowl. Mix brown sugar in the flour mixture until it’s well mixed.
Mix pumpkin puree, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1/3 cup syrup from maple egg, and buttermilk in separate bowls until smooth. Mix the pumpkin mix into the flour mix until mixed. Cool batter to allow flavor to develop for 20 to 40 mins.
Scoop approximately 1 cup of batter into each doughnut.
Bake in the oven preheated until a toothpick inserted into the doughnut’s center is clean, between 9 and 13 minutes. Do not let the doughnut cool completely in the pan. Take the edges off of each doughnut by using an offset spatula or a knife, then transfer them to a wire rack.
Mix confectioners sugar and three tablespoons of maple syrup in small bowls until the glaze is smooth.
Douse doughnuts upside-down in the glaze until it covers the top completely. Put doughnuts on a wire rack and allow the glaze to set for between 2 and 3 minutes. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds on the glaze.
