  • 1 box spice cake mix
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

Cinnamon Spice Coating

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 ¼ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon maple extract OR 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease a donut pan (or more than one if you have it).
  • In a large bowl mix together cake mix, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice. Transfer mixture to a large zip-lock bag, press the excess air out, and seal.
  • Snip one bottom corner of the bag off (about 1/2 inch from the corner) and pipe the batter into your prepared donut pan. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool for about 5-10 minutes in the pan before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • For the cinnamon-sugar coating, simply whisk together cinnamon and sugar, and toss slightly cooled donuts in the mixture to coat.
  • For the glaze, cream together cream cheese, powdered sugar, extract, and milk. Warm it in the microwave for a few seconds to make it thin and runny. Dip cooled donuts in glaze. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar if desired. Allow to cool completely.
