Pumpkin Donuts

Pumpkin donuts perfect are soft and moist baked pumpkin donuts filled with classic fall spices, are dipped in melted butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar.

Preheat the oven to 350 (177 C). Grease two 6 ct. donut pans.

Step 1:  

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, ground cloves and salt together until well combined.

Step 2:  

In another large bowl, whisk the melted and cooled butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar and eggs together until smooth and well combined. Whisk in the pumpkin puree until smooth and well combined.

Step 3:  

Mix the dry ingredients to the wet until just combined with no visible streaks of flour.

Step 4:  

Spoon or pipe the pumpkin donut batter into each of the prepared donut cavities in the donut pan. This should fill about ¾ of each cavity of the donut pan.

Step 5:  

Bake the donuts for about 14 - 16 minutes. The donuts are done when the tops bounce back quickly when lightly pressed. Cool the donuts in the pan for 5 minutes before gently taking them out to cool on a cooling rack.

Step 6:  

Dip both sides of the cooled donut into the melted butter. Quickly roll the entire baked donut into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place each cinnamon sugar pumpkin donut on the cooling rack.
