Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

5 / 5 (1 review)


  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée (canned pumpkin)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, or 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus a heaping 1/4 teaspoon each ground nutmeg and ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Add 1 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • Cinnamon & Sugar (optional)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Beat everything together until smooth.
  3. Add flour slowly and continue to mix together until well blended.
  4. Lightly grease two standard doughnut pans. (If you do not have doughnut pans, you can use a muffin pan, they just won't be doughnut shaped).
  5. Fill the wells of your doughnut pan or muffin pan 3/4 full. I find the easiest way to do this is by pouring the batter into a gallon ziploc bag, zipping it shut and then cutting a small corner off of one side. This way you can just quickly pipe the batter into your pans with minimal mess. A small measuring cup or cookie scoop will work as well.
  6. Bake the doughnuts 15-18 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean. If you are making muffins, they will need 20-25 minutes to bake. Note Oven times and temperatures can vary so keep an eye on your doughnuts to prevent over baking. Your oven may require more or less time.
  7. Remove the doughnuts from the oven and let cool 2-3 minutes. Loosen edges and transfer to cooling rack.
  8. While the doughnuts are still warm but no longer fragile, place in a gallon ziploc bag with cinnamon and sugar or other spiced sugar of your choice. Gently shake to coat. If you made muffins, simply sprinkle the tops with your sugar mixture.
  9. Serve and Enjoy!
  10. If you have a doughnut maker appliance, you can simply make up the recipe above and the follow instructions included with your appliance or test out what amount of baking time works best. I made this batch in my new Sunbeam Donut Maker and baked mine for about 6 minutes. I love how cute and uniform they turned out! Can't wait to try more recipes with it!
