Ingredients needed

  • pumpkin puree. Be sure to use 100% pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
  • granulated white sugar. Regular sugar.
  • brown sugar. I used light brown sugar for this recipe.
  • pumpkin pie spice. If you can not find this mix in the store, combine 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
  • baking powder, baking soda, salt and vanilla extract. These are essential baking ingredients.
  • large eggs. Important to use room temperature eggs.
  • all-purpose flour. Use your favorite flour.
  • vegetable oil. Canola oil or light olive oil will work for this recipe.
  • cinnamon powder. This is optional. You can also use pumpkin pie spice.

How to make this recipe

Preheat the oven to 350oF degrees. Spray the donut pan with baking spay or butter. In the mixing bowl whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside. In another mixing bowl whisk eggs with sugars. Then add pumpkin puree, oil, and vanilla extract. Sift in dry ingredients and fold together with a spatula until all combined. Batter will be thick. Transfer the dough to a pastry bag.

Tip from Marina: if you do not have a pastry bag, you can use a large Ziploc bag with one corner snipped.

Pipe the dough into the donut pan, filling about 1/2 to 2/3 full. Bake donuts for 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes. In the mixing bowl, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon powder. Add warm donut to the cinnamon sugar and toss to coat.

Tip from Marina: if the sugar is not sticking to the donuts, brush them with melted butter before coating them with cinnamon sugar.

How to store

Store Pumpkin Donuts in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days. You can freeze donuts in Ziploc bag for a few months. I would recommend freezing without a cinnamon sugar coat.
