HOW TO MAKE MINI PUMPKIN DONUTS 

  1. Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. Batter will be thick.
  2. Place batter in a piping bag and cut the end of the tip off. Squeeze batter into mini muffin tin, filling it half way.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes. If serving right away frost as desired.
  4. Frost Mini Donuts as Desired: you can either dust the tops of the mini donuts with powdered sugar or you can dip the tops of the donuts in melted butter and then immediately into the cinnamon and sugar mixture. I recommend frosting the donuts as you need them as the butter can make the donuts soggy after a few hours

I used a mini donut pan but you could also use a bigger donut pan you will just need to adjust your baking time.

    Love the idea of topping with melted butter and dipping in cinnamon sugar! If they are totally cooled do you think the sugar will still absorb in to the donut?

    So, the donuts are delicious! But I didn’t have good luck removing the donuts without some butter etc. to help release them. Also I had to cook them a lot longer than 5-7 minutes, closer to 9-11. Otherwise, great idea and great recipe!

  3. 5 stars
    These are absolutely delicious and so incredibly easy to make. Just like you, we did a few different toppings and it was so simple. Thank you!

  4. I made these for a community pot luck and they were a huge hit! I got so many compliments. They taste delicious and are perfectly pumpkiny!

  5. I followed the recipe exactly and these did not turn out. After 7 minutes they still looked raw!! Even after increasing the baking time they still weren’t done. They were chewy and tough on the outside and raw on the inside. Waste of time and ingredients ?

  6. Hi, if I don’t have Yellow Cake Mix, such as Betty Crocker, what can I replace with? Self rising flour?
    Thank you.

    1. I’m not really sure Tara! If you try it out let me know! I know people have put cake mix in a waffle maker before so you could at least try it out! πŸ™‚

  7. I made these today.omg soon oops yummy.had a hard time finding the pans.,finally got them at Joanns , and on sale too!!! Anyway the only thing I changed was the cake mix.,hubby is a diabetic . So I got the Pillsbury sugar free yellow cake mix.,you really can’t tell the difference . So he can indulge a bit..thanks so much for the recipe . ,

    1. I think that would be okay. I would probably wait to dust them with the confectioners sugar until just before eating. You can always pop them in the microwave for a few seconds to get them warm again too πŸ™‚

    1. That would probably be fine πŸ™‚ I would just keep an eye on them…if you are worried you could always drop your heat down to about 350 and just cook until finished πŸ™‚

      1. You can use a Betty Crocker Gluten free mix or another gluten free mix that does not use dairy…then it would be vegan. πŸ™‚
