For the donuts

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 15 ounce can of pumpkin (or 425 g)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

For the glaze

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin spice morsels (I used Nestle Toll House) (or 90 g)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (or 30 g)
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Sprinkles


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray donut pans with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place the dry cake mix, pumpkin, egg and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl. With an electric mixer, beat on low until ingredients are combined. Turn the speed up to medium and beat for 2 minutes. Batter will be thick.
  3. Scoop the batter into a large pastry bag and pipe into prepared pans. Fill each pan cavity to the top.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool donuts in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove to a wire rack. Place in refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile make your glaze. Place all of the glaze ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave another 10-15 seconds, if needed. Glaze should be smooth and very easy to stir.
  6. Dip chilled donuts in glaze and return to wire rack with wax paper underneath to catch the drippings. You can refrigerate them again for 20 minutes if you want them to set quickly. Eat immediately or store up to 1 day in the refrigerator.
