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
  • ½ tsp Mixed spice
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp Ground ginger
  • 225 g Self raising flour

For the icing

  • 100 g Icing sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon


  • Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and grease two 6 hole donut tins with the butter
  • Mix together the caster sugar, milk, vegetable oil, pumpkin puree and eggs in a bowl with a whisk
  • In another bowl stir the self raising flour, cinnamon, mixed spice, ginger and nutmeg together
  • Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and whisk together until combined and smooth
  • Divide the batter between the trays. You can put the batter into a piping bag or a jug 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
