  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon canned pumpkin
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice



  • In a large mixing bowl, ideally using a handheld or stand mixer, combine spice cake mix, oil, water, eggs, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Pour and scrape dough into a piping bag or a large resealable bag. If using a large resealable bag press all of the batter into one corner a cut the tip off. Squeeze or pipe batter into your donut pan. Fill each donut space half full so the batter won’t run over the sides.

  • In a small bowl, combine icing or powdered sugar, milk, canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Whisk until smooth.
  • Once donuts are cooled, dip donuts in glaze and place on a wire rack to dry for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
