  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • 4 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 donut pans using cooking spray. Recipe makes 18 donuts.
  • In a large bowl combine all of your dry ingredient flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, salt, and baking powder, stir together and set aside.
  • In a small bowl or 4 cup measuring glass combine milk, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract, mix until well combined.
  • Mix together the wet with the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  • If you don’t have a piping bag, cut the corner of a Ziplock bag, add batter and pipe the dough evenly into the prepared pans.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes before you turn them over on to a cooling rack. Let the donuts cool on rack.
  • Once donuts have completely cooled, melt butter in a small mixing bowl. Then in large mixing bowl combine sugar and cinnamon, stir together.
  • Dip the entire donut in the melted butter, make sure both sides get dunked. Then gently shake off the excess butter, and place in sugar and toss or cover until completely coated, place back on cooling rack. Repeat with the rest of the donuts, until all donuts are covered.
  • Store on cooling rack until ready to eat, I like to let them sit for a bit I think they taste better this way, but my kids would disagree. I liked them 2-3 hours later, I felt the flavors stood out more and oh my they are oh, so good!
