Pumpkin Donuts

  • 1 15.25 Ounce Box of Spice Cake Mix (we sued Duncan Hines)
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Canned, Raw Pumpkin
  • 1/3 Cup Vegetable or Canola Oil

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 2 Cups Confectioner's or Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Whole Milk


Pumpkin Donuts

  • First, preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. and remove your cream cheese from the fridge to soften.
  • Next, in large mixing bowl with a hand mixer or using a stand mixer, combine the cake mix, water, eggs, oil, and pumpkin. Blend the batter until it is smooth and silky.
  • Then, spray a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray, and fill each donut mold halfway full. Place the donuts into your oven to bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Last, remove the cooked goods from your oven and place them on a cooling rack to cool before icing. Repeat steps three and four until all the batter is gone.

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • First, in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer or using a stand mixer, combine the cream cheese, vanilla, milk, and powdered sugar to create the glaze.
  • Next, mix everything until you have a thick but smooth topping.
  • Last, once the donuts have cooled, use a tablespoon or spatula to apply the glaze to each pumpkin donut. Serve when ready.
