Easy Pumpkin Donuts

Easy Pumpkin Donuts ~ Fall flavors at it's best in these Pumpkin Donuts {including recipe for homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice!} #PumpkinRecipe #PumpkinDonuts #PumpkinPieSpice

It took me between 10 and 15 minutes to whip up these oh, so, pie-spicy, mini donuts.  Since I bought the mini Donut Maker, I use it so often, it has a permanent counter space.

This same recipe, if making larger Donuts, in the oven, would take much longer, I'd say around 30 minutes plus.  We like small bite size treats, anyway, so I never even bother to bake Donuts in the oven.

I'm not sure Pumpkin Pie Spice is available at our local supermarkets - maybe specialized baking stores, though - I looked around on the internet and found a few recipes for homemade Pumpkin Pie Spices, which were all more or less the same.  I'm sharing something similar after the Donut recipe for any of you who also have a problem finding the spice, or had simply run out.


42 - 48 Mini Donuts

1 1/2 cups Pumpkin Puree
1/2 cup Oil    {I used Sunflower Oil}
3 Eggs
1 1/2 cups Caster Sugar
2 t Pumpkin Pie Spice    ~ see recipe below for homemade ~
Pinch Salt
2 cups Self-Raising Flour
Icing Sugar, to dust

1.) Beat together all the ingredients except the Flour, until well combined.
2.) Add the Flour by the cup, beating on slow until just mixed.
3.) Pre-heat the Donut Maker - Scoop a tablespoonful into each donut hole and cook as per the instructions of the maker - mine took under 3 minutes per batch.
4.) Transfer to a cooling rack and dust with Icing Sugar.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice
yields:  +/- 1/4 cup

8 t Ground Cinnamon
2 t Nutmeg
2 t Ground Ginger
1 t Ground Cloves

1.) Mix all the spices well and keep airtight as you would your other spices.
