Pumpkin Donuts

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 TBS butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup brown sugar

Cinnamon Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2-3 TBS milk


Make the Pumpkin Donuts: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Grease a 6-well standard donut pan, set aside.
  • In a small bowl combine dry ingredients (flours, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, sea salt) and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin and melted butter until smooth and combined.
  • Add egg, milk and vanilla and stir to combine.
  • Add brown sugar and stir until it’s completely combined and dissolved into the batter.
  • Add the dry ingredients and stir until everything is combined and the batter is homogenous (uniform throughout).
  • Transfer batter from the mixing bowl into a quart Ziploc bag or piping bag. If using a plastic bag, cut off one tip of the bag.
  • Pipe batter into the wells of the donut pan.
  • Use your finger to smooth out any air pockets.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops spring back when touched and are slightly golden brown.
  • Let sit in the donut pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Make the glaze:

  • In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar and cinnamon.
  • Add 2 TBS milk and stir to combine.
  • The mixture should be firm but flowy (easily poured with a spoon but not liquidy).
  • If necessary, add more milk ½ tsp at a time (a little goes a long way).

Glaze the donuts:

  • Once the pumpkin donuts are completely cooled, apply the glaze in one of two ways:
  • 1) Dip the tops of the donuts in the bowl filled with glaze and then set on a wire cooling rack to harden.
  • 2) Use a spoon and scoop the glaze onto the donuts. Let sit on the wire cooling rack to harden.
  • Let the glazed pumpkin donuts sit at room temperature or in the refrigerator until glaze is hardened, then enjoy!
