I absolutely love pumpkin spice, and baked donuts are one of my favourite things to make. They’re also really easy to make! So Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts are the perfect combination for me. They are packed with Autumn spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, they are deliciously moist and drizzled with a sweet cinnamon icing. Grab yourself some donut pans to make this recipe (check the Amazon link towards the end of this post) and you’ll be surprised at how easy they are to put together!
To make the donuts I mixed together eggs, pumpkin puree, caster sugar, vegetable oil and milk.
In another bowl I stirred plain flour, cinnamon, mixed spice, nutmeg and ginger together.
I added the dry ingredients to the wet ones and whisked until smooth.
Then I poured the batter into my greased donut pans and baked for 12 minutes.
When they were baked I put them on a cooling rack to cool completely.
I made cinnamon icing for the donuts by adding water to icing sugar and cinnamon. Then I drizzled it over the Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts.
Wow these Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts were tasty! They were light, moist and full of spices.

Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts
For the donuts
- Butter or baking spread for greasing
- 2 Eggs large
- 175 g Pumpkin puree
- 175 g Caster sugar
- 150 ml Milk Cow's or plant milk will both work
- 30 ml Vegetable Oil
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Mixed spice
- 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp Ground ginger
- 225 g Plain flour
For the icing
- 100 g Icing sugar

Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and grease two donut tins with the butter

In another bowl stir the plain flour, cinnamon, mixed spice, ginger and nutmeg together
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and whisk together well
Divide the batter between the trays. You can put the batter into a piping bag to make it a bit neater to dispense into the trays, but you can do it with a spoon too
Bake them for 12 minutes, then remove them from the tin (I use a spoon to gently prise them out) and leave to cool on a cooling rack
Stir the icing sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and add enough water to make a drizzling icing
Set the donuts onto a rack with a baking tray underneath to catch any drips
Either put the icing in a piping bag and drizzle it over the donuts or use a spoon to drizzle it
Store leftovers in an airtight container and eat within 3 days
Mixed spice is a British spice blend containing Cinnamon, Coriander Seed, Nutmeg, Clove, Pimento, Ginger. If you can't get hold of it, use a Pumpkin Spice mix instead
