For make the donuts:

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

For the cinnamon-sugar topping:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted


To make the donuts:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray donut pan with cooking spray.
  2. Beat together oil, eggs, sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt, baking powder and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour and stir until smooth.

  3. Fill each donut cup about 3/4 full (I use a pastry bag with the end snipped off to do it neatly.) Bake for 15 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of one comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan.

To make the cinnamon-sugar topping:

  1. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl until well combined. Brush each donut with melted butter then toss in cinnamon-sugar mixture until evenly coated.
