!for the donuts:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

for the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or candy coating
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a large measuring cup, whisk together buttermilk, pumpkin, vanilla and oil.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and sitr until combined. Do not overmix.
  • Place the batter in a ziploc bag and close. Snip one corner of the bag.
  • Pipe the batter out into the prepared pan, filling the donut cavities 2/3 full.
  • Bake the donuts for 8 to 9 minutes (for me the magic number was 9). The bottom of the donuts should be golden brown and the tops should be light.
  • Cool the donuts in the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer onto a cooling rack.
  • Cool completely before glazing.
  • !to make the glaze:
  • Place chocolate, butter and corn syrup in a microwave safe small bowl. Microwave in 20 second increments until melted. Stir until smooth. Add hot water and stir again.
  • Dip each donut in the glaze and place back on a wire rack.
  • Decorate with sprinkles.
  • Store in an air tight container in a room temperature for up to 2 days.
