Pumpkin Donuts to celebrate the "cool" front!

Good Morning.

Yesterday is was 106* here in Longhorn Country. Today? High of 90*. yesss

I was up at 7 this morning (because I went to bed at 10pm, party animal over here...) and as I was getting caught up on all things Pinteresting, I saw a pin for Pumpkin Donuts. Not guna lie, I feel like I am not ready for pumpkin donuts. Yes, I am ready for a bit of cooler weather, but I am not ready to give up my weekends at the pool... so it can't be Fall yet....so it can't be time for pumpkin.

It's been awhile since I made donuts and I have to say, this recipe called to me. make meeee, mmaakkee meee!!  So I did.

They're awesome. For real life.

But what else do you expect from a King Arthur Flour recipe? Big fan of the King and all his baking products, btw. I need to share this recipe for those of you who are ready for pumpkin, and also those who maybe need a little something to whip up and contribute to a Longhorn football game watch-party? Or Tailgate? Seriously, donuts at a tailgate... genius. You're welcome.

Pumpkin Donuts

-you need a donut pan, if you hadn't thought about that yet....

1/2 cup veg oil
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 + 2 tbs All Purpose Flour (please measure correctly!)

Preheat oven to 350*
Combine all ingredients and spoon into buttered donut pan(s). Bake for 15 mins, cool on a cooling rake for 5-7mins. If you'd like, when they're warm but no longer fragile (after cooling time) shake them one at a time in a bag of a cinnamon/sugar or pie spice/sugar mixture. YUM.


  1. I am obsessed with the Starbucks Pumpkin spice this year... these donuts look amazing! It's been in the 60-70s here.:)

  2. have you ever made them in muffin tins instead?

  3. mmmm!!! These look delish...Uh oh. I might have to just go out and buy a donut pan...That could be dangerous

  4. Fall sure feels like it is here in Ontario, yuck :( But with the season comes some great looking recipes with nice fall flavors.
    Look forward to trying your pumpkin donuts. So nice that they are baked and not drowning in oil. And thinking might add a drizzle of some icing.
    Thanks for sharing!
