Flavorful Fall Baked Pumpkin Donuts
Since these donuts aren’t fried, you will need a pan for baking them. I prefer a full sized donut pan, in metal as I have found the silicone ones to stick. I would have shared an after, or final product picture, but they vanished too quickly. I didn’t even get a chance to glaze them!

So, here is the Baked Pumpkin Donut Recipe

You will need:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup veggie oil
  • 3 cups pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 and grease 2 donut pans.

In a bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and spices together.

In a different bowl, combine sugar, oil, pumpkin puree, eggs and vanilla. Whisk to combine.


Add wet mix to the dry and fold into a smooth batter.

Pop the batter into a pastry bag with a 1/2 inch round tip and piped into each donut pan cavity until they are all half full.


Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the donuts spring back when lightly touched. Flip out to cool on a wire rack.
