There is something about the weekend that makes me want to get up, and bake something scrumptious for breakfast.  Maybe its because we’re not rushed to get out the door in record time.  Or maybe its the fact that I try to start my day with a healthy, light breakfast most mornings during the week.  However the desire came about, I must share with you the latest creation of my weekend baking craving.  Everyone, meet the Pumpkin Coffee Cake Donut.  They are AMAZING!!

Now that its September, I can fully embrace my favorite season of the year (Fall!!) by baking a sweet, pumpkin spiced goodie!  I adapted a recipe that I use for chocolate donuts, and recreated it for a pumpkin-spice cake donut.  The cake inside this baked donut is light, moist and delicious. I then top it with a coffee-cake like struessel topping and drizzle the donuts with a perfect vanilla glaze.  When you bite into this donut, you get the sweet pumpkin spice cake on the bottom, and the crunch from the struessel on top.  It really is heavenly!

One tool that is pretty critical when baking donuts is a good, non-stick donut pan.  I got mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond for less than $10 – a pretty great investment, especially if you love donuts as much as my 6-year-old does.  It will literally pay for itself in the first batch of donuts you make, especially if you’re like us and schlep yourself out to your nearest Dunkin’ Donuts.  Take my word for it – just stay in your pajamas, and just whip up a batch of donuts at home.  They’re gonna taste just as good, if not better than the store-bought version.

The Wilton Donut pan that I use is a 6-well pan.  I would definitely recommend getting a second pan if you can.  It comes in very handy, as for many recipes, including this one, you’ll need to let the donuts cool slightly before removing them from the pan.  I personally like to wash it out before starting a new batch, especially since I was baking with the struessel topping, as excess topping and donut crumbs tend to burn if you leave them on the pan over multiple batches.  The second pan will allow you to work ahead having the next batch ready to go as the last batch cools.

These donuts make for a wonderful breakfast treat.  Bake a batch on the weekend, and keep them on hand for a quick on-the-go breakfast for busy weekday mornings.  They go great with your morning coffee or tea, and would be an excellent treat to bring in to your workplace break-room.  Would also make a fantastic classroom treat, or bake sale goodie!

These moist, delicious coffee-cake like donuts are the perfect morning treat! Pumpkin spice cake topped with a brown-sugar struessel and vanilla glaze makes these heavenly!
Ingredients
  • 1 box spice cake mix (like Betty Crocker or Pillsbury)
  • 1 c. pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • Struessel topping:
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • ½ c. flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • Glaze:
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. milk
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine cake mix, pumpkin puree, eggs and butter. Using a hand or stand mixer, mix on low until all ingredients are smoothly combined. Batter will be thick, and slightly sticky. Mix together the struessel: in a small mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour and spices with a fork. Drizzle the melted butter over the mixture and combine. The struessel will be crumbly.
  3. Fill the donut pan: Spoon in a few teaspoons of batter into each donut well. Smooth the batter out, it should be about ½ to ⅔ full, and then top with the struessel crumble - about a tablespoon for each donut.
  4. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Let the donuts cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Gently loosen from the pan using a fork, and lift out. Cool on a rack.
  5. Glaze: combine the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir together until smooth. Using a spoon, drizzle the glaze over the top of the donuts. Enjoy!

The next time you’re in the mood to bake something fabulous for breakfast, give these amazing donuts a try.  They’re easy to make, and so tremendously delicious especially with you’re favorite cup of coffee.  You’ll thank me later!  😉

Enjoy your fall baking!

  1. Ummmm could you send me some of these? These look AMAZING! I wish I could reach across the screen!

  2. sofia says:

    Can I use regular flour instead of cake mix?

    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

      Hi Sofia – yes, you could use flour but would also have to add several other ingredients, like sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. The cake mix pairs down these ingredients since it is a “mix” of all these products. Thanks so much for stopping by, Sophia!

    • Karen says:

      I use this recipe…just the dry ingredients part…turns out delicious!

  3. These look so good! I use similar ingredients to make a pumpkin cake so I know these will be good. Pinned!

  4. This look insane! I pinned it and want to make it soon. I came from the Wonderful Creative Wednesdays link party.

  5. Pumpkin + coffee cake + donuts – there’s no way these baked treats can’t be 100% amazing! Perfect fall recipe, too 🙂

  6. These look amazing Erin! I am a sucker for donuts and pumpkin so these sound perfect! Totally drooling over that streusel on these donuts 🙂

  7. These look absolutely delicious! I love cake doughnuts and with that topping – yum!

  8. Can this recipe be used for a loaf pan or an 8″ sq pan?

    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

      Hi Gin! Yes, you could definitely use a standard pan and bake as a traditional coffee cake. I would go with a 9×13 pan, as there is a fair amount of batter. Spray your pan with non-stick baking spray, add your prepared batter, sprinkle struessel over the top, and bake for approximately 26-30 minutes. Test with a toothpick. Drizzle the glaze over the baked coffee cake. Let me know how it turns out. Enjoy! ~Erin

  9. I have a donut cutter- could I just roll out the dough and use the cutter? I’ve done it other times with sticky donut dough..

    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

      Maybe. It’s consistency is more of a batter, but it is pretty stick. You might have trouble transferring it from the surface your cutting on to a pan. Give it a try. Good luck!

  10. I am wondering if you could make these in a muffin tin if you don’t have a donut pan?

    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

      Hi Tracy! Yes, you could definitely make in a muffin tin. Mix the batter as directed, fill tins 3/4 full, top with struessel, and bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean, & crumb free. Enjoy!

  11. These donuts look fantastic! I love coffee cake AND everything pumpkin – perfect combo! Stopping by from Foodie Fridays!

  12. I am all about pumpkin everything, but I have not gotten my doughnut pans out yet to make a pumpkin doughnut. These are a must try. Pinned!

  13. Debby says:

    Am baking and eating these right now and they are wonderfully light and tasty! I only have the Wilton mini-donut pan but it is working fine baking them for 6 minutes. I put the batter into a piping bag to fill the cavities and that works well. So far it looks like the yield for the mini size will be 60 donuts…but we’ve already eaten eight between me, my daughter and the grandson!

    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

      Excellent! So glad you and your family got to enjoy the donuts. ~Erin

  14. Like I said before I don’t even like pumpkin…but you make these look glorious! Your pics are amazing!

  15. Where to begin? These look beautiful, probably taste amazing, sound amazing, and your photos are *awesome*! Love, love, love. New reader via a link party! Cannot wait to try these!

    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

      Hi Sarah!! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello and for the kind words. Have a fantastic week! ~Erin

  16. I seriously need to get my hands on a donut pan so I can create these delicious pumpkin and coffee donuts! They look SO good!

    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

      They really are delicious! You can get donut pans on amazon.com or check your local Bed, Bath, Beyond. Enjoy!

  17. They look amazing! Beautiful photos.
    Pinned.
    Have a great day!

  18. How many regular sized donuts does this make?

  19. I made these pumpkin spice donuts today for my husband. We bought two donut pans at Bed Bath and Beyond. These donuts are amazing! So flavorful and delicious! The only thing I did differently was the icing. I had some tub cream cheese frosting at home so i melted it in the microwave and used that to use as icing. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe. This is our first experience baking donuts and this will be our go to recipe.

    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

      Yeah!!! So glad you guys loved these donuts. We love them at our house as well. In fact, I think its about time for another batch. Enjoy!

  20. delightful.e.made@gmail.com says:

    Give amazon.com a try. I know the Wilton brand is available there. Good luck!
