Serves: 6
Adjust Servings: 6


  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cups pumpkin purée canned pumpkin
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice or 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus a heaping 1/4 teaspoon each ground nutmeg and ground ginger
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • Add 1 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • Cinnamon & Sugar optional


  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F/175°C
  • Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Beat everything together until smooth.
  • Add flour slowly and continue to mix together until well blended.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Remove the doughnuts from the oven and let cool 2-3 minutes. Loosen edges and transfer to cooling rack.
  • 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.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
  • 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!
