Pumpkin Donuts

MINI PUMPKIN DONUTS!  Who doesn’t love donuts, let alone pumpkin ones?!  This is the perfect pumpkin treat to serve your guests for brunch or for dessert after a delicious dinner.  These can be made with mini donut pans (as you will see shortly) or with the regular sized donut pans.  These mini pumpkin donuts made over 3 dozen easily.  The bigger donut pans might make over 1 dozen.  So grab your pumpkin and let’s start baking…

Pumpkin Donuts


  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cups of flour
Sugar Glaze:
  • Cinnamon sugar (cinnamon and sugar mixed together)
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
Pumpkin Donuts


  1. Preheat yo’ oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat all the ingredients together smooth.
  3. Add in the flour, and continue to stir until smooth.
  4. Grease the donut pan – do this right and they will pop right out.
  5. Fill the wells of the doughnut pans about 1/2 to 3/4 full.  I filled a few to the top in my first bake, and they came out looking like cupcakes.
  6. Bake the doughnuts for 8-10 minutes (or 15 to 18 minutes if using larger pans).
  7. Remove the doughnuts from the oven, and after about 5 minutes, loosen their edges, and transfer them to a rack to cool.
  8. Mix up some cinnamon and sugar for the cinnamon sugar coat.  Brush the melted butter on the donuts and dip into the sugar coating.
  9. Place them in a fancy jar or start eating them!
