Is everyone ready for Christmas? I am, well sort of. I haven’t done any shopping yet but I have been cooking and baking it up in the kitchen. I love this time of year and all the festive holiday flavors and foods! And nothing says the holidays like pumpkin so why not make Pumpkin Donuts.
I don’t know about you but as a kid I grew up eating donuts for breakfast and Saturdays were always a fitting donut day. That’s because it was mom’s cleaning day. It was her secret way of pre-occupying us into staying out of her way with cartoons and donuts. Oh, the donut bribery! But who was really winning? We were of course! We were getting to lounge around in our pajamas, covered in icing, while watching cartoons.
Now, that I’m adulting I look forward to Saturdays with a warm cup of coffee, a fresh delicious homemade donut, and my Ugg slippers. It makes me feel like I’m living the happy life. The coffee warms me up and wakes me up while the donuts remind me of childhood.
My Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts w/ Vanilla Icing are the easiest donuts you will ever make and best part about them is that you only need five simple ingredients plus a donut pan. Voila you have donuts!
- 1 Box Betty Crocker Spice Cake Mix
- 1 15oz Can of Pumpkin Puree
- Donut pan
- 1 Cup of Powder Sugar
- 1 tbsp of Milk
- Splash of Vanilla Bean Paste
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix your spice cake mix and pumpkin puree in a bowl and add to your donut pan.
- Bake for 9-12 minutes depending on your oven. Test by sticking a toothpick in the donut. If it comes out clean they are done.
- Allow to cool.
- Mix your powder sugar, vanilla, and milk to make the icing.
- You can dip your donut, drizzle over the top of the donut, or spoon onto your donut.
- *Store in refrigerator if you want the icing to stay firm.
