Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts

Sharing is caring!

These pumpkin spice baked donuts are coated in cinnamon sugar. They are super fluffy and oh so moist. Baked donuts have such a great flavor that you will not miss a fried yeast donut. Make this easy pumpkin spice donut recipe all fall long!

Earlier this year, I purchased a couple of baking donut pans. I mean, I love a good yeast donut, but I have recently fallen in love with making baked donuts. My Pecan Cinnamon Sugar Baked Apple Donuts are amazing and baked in these pans as well.

They are so much easier and hassle-free. And the flavor combos you can make are amazing.

So, let's get down to making these delicious Pumpkin Spice donuts.

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

While the oven is heating, combine your dry ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together.

In another bowl, combine your wet ingredients. Mix until combined.

Now, mix them together.

The best way to get your batter evenly into the donut pan is to use a piping bag and pipe the batter into the pan. If you do not have a piping bag, you can totally use a Ziplock bag.

Scoop all the batter into the bag and squeeze it to one end. Cut the corner (about ¾ inch) and you’ll be able to make perfect circles.

Try not to overfill your cavities. To make sure the donuts are a perfect size, I only fill mine up about 3/4 of the way.

Once you get the pan filled, bake for about 15-18 minutes.

Make the Cinnamon Sugar Topping

Melt 1 stick of butter in a bowl and set it aside. Combine cinnamon and sugar in another bowl. Dip the donuts in the butter (both sides) and then dip in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Flip, and do the other side.

I hope you enjoy these donuts as much as I did. They last for a couple of days. They seem to lose their softness after a couple of days.
