Dunkin Donuts inspired Pumpkin Donut

One of the things I love most about fall is all the "pumpkin spice"/"pumpkin pie" flavored goodies that shops come out with... Last week I gave you a recipe for a Starbuck's inspired Pumpkin Spice Latte... Today I give you a recipe for a Dunkin Donuts inspired BAKED Pumpkin Donuts


  • 1 cup pastry flour (4 ounces) or 7/8 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar (3 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons dry buttermilk (1 ounce)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (1 1/4 ounce)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water

  1. Whisk together all dry ingredients in a medium size bowl.
  2. Beat the eggs, oil and water (or buttermilk or yogurt) until foamy.
  3. Pour the liquid ingredients all at once into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
  4. Butter or grease the doughnut pan, non-stick pan spray works well.
  5. Fill each doughnut form half full.
  6. 2 Bake doughnuts in a pre-heated 375 f oven for 10-12 minutes.
  7. When done, they'll spring back when touched lightly and will be quite brown on top.
  8. Remove the doughnuts from the pan and allow to cool on a rack.
  9. Glaze with icing, coat with cinnamon sugar or frost with Nutella.
I bought my Norpro Mini Doughnut Pan on Amazon for about $9, not bad at all. I like the baked doughnuts because they are sooo much easier then frying or rolling out dough and cutting out individual doughnuts. All you do is pipe the batter into the doughnut pan, pop it into the oven and viola you’ve got doughnuts! If you don’t have a pastry bag you can just carefully spoon the batter into the molds. It took me less then an hour to make the batter and bake the above recipe for the Pumpkin Doughnuts!
