Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donuts are a homemade pumpkin spice donut that you can make at home! The cinnamon sugar dusting is the perfect sweetness to these homemade cookies.
Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donuts
Mornings are getting a little chillier, so fall is upon us. When fall hits I crave sweet donuts that fit the season. If you love pumpkin you might really enjoy these donuts.
How to Make
Batter | Whip up your pumpkin spice donut mix. You will want to make sure you mix the batter well so all ingredients are mixed.
Bake | You will bake up your donuts as directed in the printable recipe card. Then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. This is optional but it does give these donuts tons of flavor.
How to Store Donuts
You are more than welcome to store your donuts in an airtight container at room temperature. Just allow the cookies to fully cool down before you place in a container. Or it can create condensation in the container.
Where Do I Find Pumpkin Spice
You will find pumpkin spice blend in your spice aisle at the store. Or if you would like you are more than welcome to make your own pumpkin spice from the spices you have at home.
Can I Do A Glaze Instead of Dusting In Cinnamon And Sugar
Absolutely! If you are looking to add a pumpkin glaze go right ahead. I love the sugar dusting but if you want to do a classic glaze or even a pumpkin glaze go right ahead.
Get creative and choose to opt for what you want, or do a mix of dusting and a mix of glazed.
Can I Freeze Donuts
If you don’t plan on eating these right away you can freeze your leftover donuts. I find that leaving the cinnamon and sugar mixture off the donuts is always best. As some will meltdown as it thaws from being frozen.
I like to make a bunch of donuts and then freeze a bunch. Then you can thaw on the counter or toss in the microwave for a quick reheat for a fresh out of the oven taste.
This is a perfect way to serve up for a quick breakfast for you or your kids.
