I have to say, whether it’s fall or not — I’m a pumpkin spice fan. Not in the obsessy way that necessitates wearing a t-shirt about it or anything, but in the way that I just plain like it. And this mini donut recipe has the perfect amount of pumpkin spice, so they’re perfect year round (but especially enjoyable in the fall).

Psst — before you dive in, be sure to check out these other recipes that are perfect for fall!

Why I love this mini Donut Recipe

For the record, can I just tell you how much I love these? I particularly love this mini donut recipe because these babies are baked. And that means a couple of things.

First, it means that you’re not eating a lot of grease when you snack on these little pumpkin spice mini donuts. No greasy fingers, no greasy bags. They feel light and fluffy.

And secondly, it means you don’t have to worry about deep frying anything at home! It can definitely be fun to deep fry at home but it comes with a lot of logistical problems, and kind of makes a big mess. So these are easy-peasy, and the flavor is still totally donut-y and worthwhile.

Printable Recipe Card

And hey, I made a little printable recipe card so you can share your new favorite mini donut recipe with friends! This recipe was my go-to for a long time when I was baking for other people. I would make a batch, bag some up for friends, and give them the recipe card along with the mini donuts.

Pumpkin Spice Mini Donut Recipe

DONUTS

  • mini donut pan
  • 1/2 c vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 c canned pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 3/4 c + 2 tbsp (8 ounces) unbleached, all-purpose flour

Beat all ingredients except flour together in a large bowl until smooth. Add flour, stirring until evenly mixed.

Grease a mini donut pan and pipe mixture into wells until each is a little more than half full. If you don’t have a piping bag, then you can put the mixture into a Ziploc bag and snip off the tip. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes.

SUGARING

  • 1/4 c melted butter
  • 1 c granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon

Remove donuts and let them cool. Next, mix sugar and cinnamon in a large Ziploc bag. Then brush donuts with melted butter and drop into bag with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Roll until covered, serve, and enjoy!
