Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour (measure 2 cups remove 2 Tbsp)

    • 1 3/4 tsp baking powder

    • 1 1/4 tsp salt

    • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

    • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

    • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

    • 3 large eggs

    • 1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin puree

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter 18 doughnut wells (3 6-hole pans. 

  • In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger for 20 seconds, set aside. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar and brown sugar until well combined (break up clumps of brown sugar with fingertips as necessary. You don't want any clumps). Add canola oil, eggs, pumpkin puree and vanilla extract and using an electric hand mixer, blend until mixture is well blended. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and mix with electric mixer until well combined. Spoon or pipe batter into doughnut wells, filling each about 3/4 full (a scant 1/4 cup in each).

  • Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 13 - 16 minutes. Cool doughnuts slightly. Meanwhile in a large resealable bag shake together 1/3 cup sugar and 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon until well combined. Add one warm doughnut to bag at a time, seal and shake with sugar mixture to coat. Place on wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
