Pumpkin Spice Donuts are a easy one bowl recipe. Incredibly moist , fluffy, and coated in a warm cinnamon and sugar layer. The perfect fall breakfast, brunch, or dessert!


  • 11/2 cups Namaste Foods Spice Cake Mix ( *you will not be using the whole box- make sure to measure )
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup organic canned pumpkin puree ( not canned pumpkin pie mix )
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 2 eggs ( room temperature )

Cinnamon and Sugar Coating

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons melted Earth Balance Butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease donut pan and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl add spice cake mix, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, canned pumpkin puree, oil, and eggs.
  4. Mix with a spatula until batter is thoroughly combined and smooth.
  5. Pipe batter into donut cavities ( or use a large cookie scoop to scoop batter into donut cavities ).
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. ( Mine were done in 10 minutes. Don’t over bake- the donuts will become rubbery…. oven temps may vary – keep an eye and check with a toothpick )
  7. Let cool completely before coating in cinnamon and sugar layer.

Cinnamon and Sugar Coating
