For Donuts:

  • 1 cup (120 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (107 grams) brown sugar packed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • ½ cup (113 grams) pumpkin puree
  • 2 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 large egg

For Glaze:

  • ½ cup (57 grams) powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice


For Donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray your donut mold with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, light brown sugar, salt, baking powder, and pumpkin spice.
  • In a separate bowl mix pumpkin puree, melted butter, and egg.
  • Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix only until just combined. The batter will be thick.
  • Spoon the batter into the donut pan and place the donut pan on a cookie sheet.
  • Put the donuts into the pre-heated oven and bake for 15-17 minutes or until they spring back when lightly pressed.
  • Remove from oven allow and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove and allow to cool fully before glazing.

For Glaze:

  • In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla, and pumpkin spice. Whisk until fully combined and smooth.
  • If the glaze is too thick add more heavy cream. If the glaze is too thin add more powdered sugar.
  • When the donuts are cooled dip the tops of the donuts into the glaze.


  • Don't overmix. If you want tender and fluffy donuts make sure you only mix as much as you need to. Overmixing the batter will make the baked donuts tough.
  • Use a piping bag to fill your mold. This is not necessary, but it will give your donuts a much cleaner looked and it's easier to fill the molds this way.
  • Oil the donut mold. A must! Oiling the mold will make it much easier to remove the donuts and clean the molds.
