Pumpkin Donuts

DSC_0421I love donuts. Like on a serious level. If I knew there wouldn’t be serious health consequences I’d eat them every day. But, since I do they’re always a treat for me. Since this is the season of everything pumpkin and I love to bake, I decided to test out a recipe for pumpkin donuts.


1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

3 eggs

1/2 cup oil

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp flour

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp salt

1 3/4 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat the oven to 350DSC_0394
  • Mix the first five ingredients, your wet ingredients, in a bowl.
  • Mix the dry ingredients.
  • Slowly add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients.
  • Fill each donut slot to the topDSC_0390
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes
  • Remove from pan and let cool for 5-10 minutes on a rack
  • Toss your donuts in your sugar or glaze

I tossed half of my donuts in cinnamon sugar and the other half in a maple glaze. DSC_0406I’m not even going to lie to you, I just eyeballed the cinnamon sugar so I don’t have measurements for it. But making cinnamon sugar is pretty full proof, and you can also buy it premixed. DSC_0416The glazed donuts tasted fine but the consistency of the glaze was super thin and I couldn’t get it to thicken up. They were also really sticky. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely still ate them but I don’t want to give you the recipe for the glaze since it was flawed. DSC_0419Overall, my first run with making donuts wasn’t perfect but they tasted great and they were a hit among my aunts!DSC_0423
