Pumpkin Bagels with Apple Cider Glaze

by Michelle on September 27, 2010

This week for HBinFive we made Pumpkin Pie Brioche and you can find the recipe at the highlighted link. We did make the Pumpkin Brioche before and it is still one of my favorites so I was happy to see it once again on our agenda and excited to try Brioche Doughnuts!

I decided to use my Mini Doughnut Pan to bake the doughnuts. I love my Mini Doughnut Pan and use it far more then I ever thought I would. Each doughnut is about 3-4 bites, just enough for a snack!

To form the bagel doughnuts, I rolled the dough into a short snake about 6″ long and about 1/2″ thick and then formed it into a doughnut shape. I placed them in the Mini Doughnut Pan, then covered to rise until doubled and baked at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.

The Pumpkin Brioche Doughnuts were more like a savory Pumpkin Bagel and they were absolutely delicious even without the Glaze! I planned on just making one pan of doughnuts but the first pan was eaten before they were even cooled!!! Because the bagels were savory, I did make some Apple Cider Glaze and dipped some of the bagels in the Glaze and sprinkled with coarse Raw Sugar and White Sugar.

Apple Cider Glaze
Recipe developed by BigBlackDog

1/4 c Butter
4 TBL Brown Sugar
3 TBL Sugar
1/2 c Apple Cider
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2 TBL Cream

In a small sauce pan over medium low heat, melt the butter. Add the Sugars, Apple Cider and Cinnamon and whisk until sugar is completely melted. Simmer until thick. Make sure that you whisk every few minutes to keep the glaze from scorching.

When the glaze is thick whisk in the cream. Remove pan from heat and cool. Once the glaze is cooled, if the glaze is too thick to pour, thin with 1-2 tsp of Cream or Apple Cider.

    Michelle,

    I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had time to bake the last couple of breads. I am really excited to try this one…as soon as I make a dent in the garden produce on my counter!
    What a great way to use this dough.

    Oh my those just scream fall!

    I’m almost ashamed to admit that I still dream about that pumpkin brioche. I need to make it again. Maybe tonight. Probably into these donuts, which look awesome.

    Looks delish, Michelle! Any ideas of toppings for those with diabetic tendencies?

    • Michelle September 29, 2010 at 11:18 am

      Jamie,

      I made some of the bagels with no topping especially for my diabetic husband but I served them with a mug of Hot Apple Cider. I have a wonderful recipe for Hot Apple Cider on my blog:

    Michelle,
    Those look awesome. Just another reason for me to get that donut pan.

    I’m going to give these a try. We have a donut pan, too. Thanks for the idea.

    I am just starting to get into a pumpkin frame of mind. Blame Di as she sent me some pumpkin cookies and I was hooked. I have never been a pumpkin fan before this, now seeing this post and your other one, I am starting to rethink my pumpkin ban around here. These look fantastic!

    Wow…these bagels look and sound absolutely divine!
