Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

Diane C.


This is the easiest doughnut recipe I've seen. I saw this on Facebook. I tweaked it slightly to make it mine.

I believe it was posted by TipHero, but originates from SkinnyGirl.com as Two Ingredient Cake.

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Pour the cake mix into a medium bowl. Add the pumpkin pie spice. Mix well.
  3. Add the pumpkin puree. Stir to combine.
  4. Grease or spray your doughnut pans.
    Pour the dough into a piping bag (you can use a resealable 1 gal. plastic bag). Close the bag, burping out the air. Cut a small piece off the bottom corner of the bag. Squeezing the bag, pipe the dough into your doughnut pans. You want each ring to be 2/3 full in height.
    Sprinkle each doughnut with cinnamon sugar.
  5. Bake 10-12 minutes. Check with a toothpick or cake tester, or, if the top springs back when pressed, they are done.
  6. Remove pans from the oven. Let cool 5 minutes, then remove doughnuts from the pan to a cooling rack. Can frost when cool, if desired.

    Makes 12 donuts.
  7. Notes: You can also use spice cake mix.
    I used a heaping teaspoon of the pumpkin pie spice. I sprinkled the top with cinnamon sugar before I baked them.
    If you want to glaze the doughnuts, go ahead.
    There's a lot of variety between brands of pumpkin pie spice. I never used it before, preferring to add individual spices. I tried several brands and found one that I love.
