Baked Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

I woke up yesterday morning looking out at all of the fall leaves and got a serious craving for Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts.  Baked doughnuts at home are incredibly easy and fast to make and this recipe definitely hit the spot!  I hope you enjoy!


for the donuts

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 can of pumpkin purée
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • Make sure you have a donut pan

for the glaze

  • 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 3-6 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Combine all ingredients except for flour and mix until smooth
  • Slowly add flour 1/2 cup at a time.
  • Stir until combined.
  • Place batter in a ziplock bag and cut off the tip to fashion a piping bag.  (I usually put the bag in a glass and scoop the dough in)  
  • Pipe batter into a donut pan that is sprayed with non-stick spray
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Allow to cool on a baking rack while you prepare frosting
  • To prepare frosting--combine all ingredients in a mixer, whipping until you get a royal icing type consistency.
  • Dip donut in frosting and allow to cool. (The frosting will melt onto your Donut.  Dip multiple times for a thicker glaze).
  • Enjoy!
