Baked Pumpkin Donut Holes

Are you ready for Fall?  I starting to get in that mood.  Need a little fall treat?  These baked pumpkin donut holes are exactly what you need!  Pumpkin with cinnamon is always a great combination.

Place the following in a mixing bowl:

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée (canned pumpkin)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, or 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus a heaping 1/4 teaspoon each ground nutmeg and ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Beat everything together until smooth.

Add 1 3/4 cups flour, stirring just until smooth.

Lightly grease your mini muffin pan.  (You will have enough dough to fill the pan twice.)   Fill each muffin hole about 3/4 full.

Bake the doughnuts at 350 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean.

While the doughnuts are still warm (but no longer fragile), gently shake them in a bag with cinnamon-sugar. Or better yet, pumpkin-spice sugar, made by combining the pumpkin pie spice with cinnamon sugar.


Recipe shared from King Arthur Flour.  They made the donuts, we made the donut holes.
