Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts

I worked on this recipe, trying several variations until I hit upon the key ingredients. By mixing pumpkin pie filling and straight pumpkin you get intense flavor and you build it even more with the addition of pumpkin oil. I suggest spraying the doughnut pans with an oil/flour mixture or wiping them with oil and dusting with flour before using and between each batch. If you don’t have oat flour and whole wheat pastry flour you can substitute all-purpose flour, just use a high quality flour and don’t pat it down when measuring.

  1. Preheat the oven to 325˚ degrees.
  2. Lightly grease 2 – 12 count nonstick metal doughnut pans.
  3. Beat together the oil, eggs, 3 cups sugar, pumpkin, 1 tsp. pumpkin seed oil, 1 1/2 tsps. pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking powder until smooth.
  4. Combine flours, gently add into mixture and stir just until smooth.
  5. Fill large pastry bag with pumpkin mixture and pipe into donut pans until 3/4 full.
  6. Bake the donuts for 14-16 mins or until they are lightly browned.
  7. Remove the donuts from the oven and set aside; after 5 minutes gently removed from pan and transfer them to cooling rack.
  8. Melt butter in a small saucepan.
  9. In a separate small, wide bowl combine 2 cups sugar and 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and ½ tsp. cinnamon.
  10. Brush donuts lightly with butter, but not drenched and then toss in sugar & spice mixture to coat evenly.
