Baked Pumpkin Donut Holes

October 26, 2010

Hi, it’s still fall. So, I’m still baking with pumpkin.

Pumpkin donut holes. Recipe by Craving Chronicles.

It looks like fall here in Missouri, and it smells like fall (or at least my kitchen does), but it doesn’t feel like fall! The weather has been so warm lately. C’mon, I want sweater weather!

These little donut holes are so darn sugary and very easy to make. They’re a nice little dessert after a big dinner or a quick breakfast for those on the go. The best part is you get to decide how many you want to eat!

Pumpkin Donut Holes

Prep time: 2o minutes | Cook time: 12 minutes

Makes 4 dozen

You’ll need:

1 3/4 cup flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 cup milk


For coating:

1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled

2/3 cup sugar

2 T cinnamon



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mini muffin tins with cooking spray (I only have two of these tins, so I had two rounds of baking).

2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt.

3. In a separate large bowl, whisk together oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and milk until smooth. Add dry ingredients until just incorporated.

4. Scoop out batter and fill muffin tins (I used a medium-sized cookie scoop). Bake for 10-12 minutes.

5. While the muffins are in the oven, melt butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon in separate bowl. Once muffins are done baking and have cooled. dip each individual muffin to butter (I had no problem using my fingers. It wasn’t too messy) and then roll in sugar mixture. Then, eat!
