{pumpkin donut holes}


Fri-YAY! Hallelujah! It’s been a week. Sorry for the lack of posting here. I had the best intentions, but just couldn’t make it happen. No Friday 5 today. I couldn’t think of 5 things if you paid me. So let’s switch it up…..Since I did promise these pumpkin donut holes.

And tomorrow is Saturday, which would be the perfect time to whip up a batch of these bad boys.

Also, FYI – Anthropologie is having a good sale. So, I linked some fun + really pretty coffee mugs at the end of this post. Scroll down and check it out. I’ve also linked them in my Instagram bio for easy access.


Crazy easy recipe. Baked, not fried. Pumpkiny….tis the season, right?

You do need a mini muffin pan. I picked one up at Walmart for $6.


WARNING: they are so dangerous, so make sure you make them when your peeps are awake. I made the mistake of making a batch last weekend. When I was alone. BAD idea.

Remember you can pin it. Print it. Tag me. Message me. I love to hear what you think ❤️

pumpkin donut holes

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 18 tablespoons butter, softened + divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar

Here’s what you’ll do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a mini muffin pan.

Using a mixer, beat together 10 tablespoons butter + brown sugar for 2 minutes.

Add pumpkin puree + eggs and mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine flour + baking powder + baking soda + salt + 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon + nutmeg.

Slowly add dry ingredients and mix on low speed.  Then add milk.

Using a cookie scoop or spoon, place 1 tablespoon size of batter into mini muffin tin.

Bake for 12 minutes.

Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Melt butter in a bowl.  Place sugar and remaining 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon in a shallow bowl.

Dunk donut holes in butter then roll in cinnamon + sugar.

Now the tricky part, don’t pound 10 of them before you’ve finished coating the donut holes 🙂


Nothing goes better with a warm pumpkin donut hole than a big cup of coffee.  I get asked about my mugs all the time, so I thought I’d round up some good ones.  And today, Anthropologie just to happens to be having a sale.  Which NEVER happens.  25% off everything + FREE SHIPPING.  If you’re an Anthro gal, then you know this is a BIG deal…lol.  They also carry the best mugs.  I honestly think coffee tastes better when you drink it out of a cute cup.  Don’t you think?


And since we’re on the mug subject.  This is also a great time to pick up a gift for a girlfriend.  Neighbor.  Teacher.  Hostess.  The Holidays are right around the corner and these are perfect for gift giving.  I love to stick a paperwhite bulb in the mug when gifting.  It’s so pretty once it blooms.  Fill it with candy.  Baked goods.  You name it, you really can’t go wrong.

Click on the images of the coffee mugs below and it will take you directly to Anthro’s website.  If you have any trouble, don’t hesitate to shoot me a message.  I’m always happy to helop 🙂

Have a great weekend!!
