Easiest Ever Homemade Pumpkin Spice Donuts
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1¾ cup (plus 2 tbsp) flour
  • ½ cup canola
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1½ cup sugar (plus an extra 1 cup for the topping)
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon (plus 1 tsp for the topping)
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
Instructions
  1. Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350 degrees. I also like to spray my pan with cooking spray. Coconut cooking spray is one of my personal favorites.
  2. Using a standing mixer, beat the pumpkin puree, oil, sugar and eggs until they are is well combined.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and each of the spices. Mix with a large spoon to combine everything well.
  4. Next you want to slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  5. Now it's time to pour the batter into the donut pans. Remember, you only want to fill them about ¾ of the way full.
  6. Bake them in the oven for 24 minutes.
  7. Once they are done remove them from the oven and let them cool. I like to cool them in a rack for about 5-10 minutes before I remove them from the donut wells. You still want them to be a bit warm, so the sugar topping will stick, but not too warm to handle.
  8. Now let's mix together the topping really quick.
  9. In a large ziplock bag, add 1 cup of sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon.
  10. Add a 1-2 donuts to the bag at a time and shake, shake, shake until they are well coated with sugar.
  11. Remove from bag and place the coated donuts directly onto the cooling racks to finish cooling.
  12. Enjoy!
