3 Ingredient Pumpkin Donuts

Who knew pumpkin donuts were as easy as 1, 2, 3! It really is that easy and it all begins with a cake mix!

These turn out to be a nice tender cake donut. I coated them in a nice glaze which turned out deliciously. However, maple or chocolate icing would also be tasty. You could even just mix some chocolate chips into the batter. I used this Wilton donut pan to bake the batter and ended up with 13 donuts!

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Donuts
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 (15 oz) can or 1¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • For the glaze:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 2 Tbsp hot water
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cake mix, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice. It will take some time for the batter to come together, so no worries, just keep stirring.
  3. Place batter into a gallon sized freezer bag. Cut of a corner and pipe the batter into a donut pan (prepared according to pan instructions, mine was non-stick).
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for about 9 minutes.
  5. Allow donuts to cool.
  6. To prepare glaze, combine ingredients together until smooth.
  7. Place cooled donuts on a cooling racked that has been place on a baking sheet or place parchment paper underneath. Then spoon glaze over the donuts. Makes 13 donuts.
