Pumpkin Cake Donuts with Cinnamon and Sugar

Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Spice Donuts

My children just love when I make them homemade doughnuts.  Like most kids their again, they would eat doughnuts for every meal if I were to let them.  But I don’t, so they can’t.

But I am not a total meanie so I do let them have doughnuts some of the time, but I want to know what it is them.  That is why I have come up with a bunch of doughnut recipes that my kids love and I can feel better about serving them and this pumpkin cake donuts recipe is the new addition to our lineup at home!

Missed my other doughnut recipes?

To make them, you will need:

pumpkin cake donuts ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 15 oz Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 3/4 cups Flour
  • 3 tbsp Cinnamon Sugar

This pumpkin donut recipe uses the same pan that we used with the Chocolate Glazed Baked Donut Recipe. You should be able to find it at AC Moore, Michael’s, etc or you can always just grab it on Amazon. The easiest way to fill the cavities of the pan and to not make a mess is to transfer your batter to a gallon-sized zipper bag, cut off a corner of the bag and then “pipe” the batter in to the pan.

As for the cinnamon and sugar on top – that is up to you. I will typically just sprinkle the mixture on top of the donuts (while warm), but if I am feeling extra generous, I will double the amount of cinnamon & sugar topping and actually dip the donuts in the mixture.  You can even sprinkle some on top of the batter before baking and then a little more after they are baked.

These makes my kids REALLY happy!
