Easiest Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

Updated: Oct 10, 2018

Ok, so everyone in my house is pumpkin spice craaaazy! Except me... Well, most of the time.

Easiest Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

Canadian Thanksgiving just passed and I was tasked with bringing dessert to our family dinner. So instead of bringing the usual store-bought pumpkin pie, I chose to make doughnuts... Because as much as I don't like the whole pumpkin spice craze, I love a good doughnut. So here it is, folks, the easiest, mom-friendly, kid-loved pumpkin spice doughnuts with a cinnamon glaze.


For the doughnuts

• 1 box of yellow (or golden) cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)

• 2 cups of canned pumpkin

• 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

• 1/2 tsp ground ginger

• 1/4 tsp ground allspice

• 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

• 1/4 tsp ground cloves

For the Glaze

• 2 Cups confectioners sugar

• 2 Tbsp milk (or water)

• 1 tsp ground cinnamon


For the Doughnuts

• Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

• Grease 2 doughnuts pans (I bought mine at Michaels)

• Add all ingredients for the doughnuts together in a bowl and mix until well combined

• Using a piping bag (or large ziplock back with a corner cut off) pipe the batter into the doughnut pan. Fill 3/4 of the way full. • Bake for 10-12 minutes. You will know it's done when a toothpick comes out clean.

• Allow to cool slightly before removing them from the pan and onto a cooling rack.

For the Glaze

• Add all ingredients together in a small bowl and mix well.

• When the doughnuts are fully cooled and ready to serve, drizzle cinnamon glaze over top.


The fastest, easiest, and dare I say, pretty darn delicious, doughnuts you'll ever make.

Let us know how they turned out for you.

Hugs! Erin & Karla
