pumpkin doughnuts

I recently got a doughnut (or donut?) pan, and I couldn't wait to try it out! My first attempt didn't turn out so well (apple doughnuts that definitely tasted more like bread), but I hit a big success with these pumpkin doughnuts! So moist and delicious! I have a feeling these will be made multiple times this year!

Pumpkin Doughnuts with Sour Cream Icing (recipe from Real Simple)
ingredients for doughnuts:
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

ingredients for icing:
  • 3/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp fresh lemon juice
  1. Heat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a doughnut pan.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, granulated sugar, brown sugar, oil, egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  4. Spoon 1/4 cup batter into each compartment of the doughnut pan. Bake until the doughnuts are golden brown and spring back slightly when touched, about 12-14 minutes. 
  5. Let cool in pans for about 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. While the doughnuts are cooling, whisk together the confectioners sugar, sour cream and lemon juice in a small bowl. Dunk the cooled doughnuts in the icing and let set on a piece of parchment or wax paper. 



  1. These pumpkin doughnuts look absolutely perfect for fall, Kylie! I've been trying to keep my crazy sweettooth under control these past few weeks, but I may have to just give in to make these. Let's be real, sour cream frosting NEEDS to happen! (:
