Pumpkin Donuts

Pumpkin Donut RecipeIts pumpkin everything season and I, for one, am happy about that.

These homemade pumpkin donuts are soft, moist and fluffy with a delicious cinnamon-sugar coating. They have that wonderful pumpkin flavor we all know and love.

This recipe would be great to make on the weekend or to share with friends and family at a fall gathering. These donuts also freeze very well!

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin purée

  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Sugar coating

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease two standard size donut pans.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk all the donut mix ingredients except the flour until smooth.
  3. Add in the flour and stir just until smooth again.
