Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Pumpkin spice donuts bring the best flavors of fall to the table! These donuts are baked, not fried, and come together super quickly for a comforting seasonal treat. Subtly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg then dunked in a maple glaze topping, believe me, you'll be making these donuts on repeat this fall.  

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 18 min. Makes: 1 dozen donuts 


Donut Batter

  • 4 Tbsp. butter, melted or dairy-free butter
  • ⅔ c. sugar or sugar substitute
  • 2 large egg (or "Just Egg", "Simply Eggless" or 4 tsp baking powder, 2 Tbsp. water and 2 Tbsp. of vinegar)
  • ½ c. pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • tsp. pumpkin spice 
  • 1½ c. Donut Mix

Maple Glaze

  • c. powdered sugar
  • 5-7 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. vanilla 

You will need a donut or muffin pan.


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease donut or muffin pan and set aside. 
  2. In a medium bowl melt butter. Add sugar and stir together with a fork. (sugar will start to dissolve). Add the egg and pumpkin puree and whisk together. 
  3. In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin pie spice, and 1½ c. donut mix. Mix until combined. Scoop the dry mixture into the milk & butter mixture and stir together with a fork, starting in the center until all dry ingredients are combined and batter is smooth (no lumps). The batter will be thick.
  4. Spoon donut batter into a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip or into a ziplock baggie with the tip cut off. Pipe batter into the donut ring until full. If using the muffin pan, fill each well ½ full.
  5. Bake at 350ºF for 18 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before dipping in topping.
  6. Prepare glaze in a medium bowl by stirring together powdered sugar, syrup and vanilla until smooth. (no lumps).
  7. Place a sheet of wax paper under a cooling rack to collect drippings. Dip donuts into the glaze to coat one side and place on cooling rack. 
  8. Serve immediately.
Donuts the next day? Microwave 10-15 seconds and re-glaze if desired. Donuts will soften like they were fresh-baked.
