  • Yield: 12 donuts 1x



For the Donuts

  • 2 c all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cardamom ((optional))
  • 1/4 tsp clove
  • 2/3 c pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs ((room temp))
  • 2/3 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 c whole milk
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

For the Glaze

  • 1 2/3 c powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 tbsp whole milk
  • food coloring or sprinkles for decorating!


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare your donut pans by greasing them with butter or shortening. 
  2. In a bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients; the flour, baking powder, salt & spices. 
  3. In a large separate bowl, combine the pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, eggs, butter & vanilla. 
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. 
  5. Pipe or spoon the batter into each donut cavity until it is about 3/4 of the way full. This recipe will make about 12 donuts (I got 14 out of my batch). 
  6. Bake for about 10-13 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
  7. Allow to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. After, flip the pan and pop the donuts out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling. 
  8. When the donuts have fully cooled, prepare the glaze. Dip each donut into the glaze, return to the rack and allow to dry.
