Baked Pumpkin Donuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease the donut pans.
  2. Beat together the oil, eggs, sugar, pumpkin, spices, salt, and baking powder until smooth.
  3. Add the flour, continue mixing until batter is smooth.
  4. Fill the donuts about 3/4 full. An easy way to do this is to pour the batter into a plastic bag, cut the corner and pipe it into the donut pan.
  5. Bake donuts for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean.
  6. Transfer donuts to a cooling rack carefully once they’ve cooled for a few minutes.
  7. Combine another 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 tsp of cinnamon in a bowl. Mix completely. Pour cinnamon sugar mixture into a gallon plastic bag.
  8. Gently place donuts into a large bag filled with the cinnamon sugar mixture and coat completely.
  9. Place out on a cooling rack to cool or enjoy warm!
