Pumpkin Crumb Doughnuts
These Pumpkin Crumb Doughnuts are the perfect fall treat! With just 3 ingredients, these doughnuts come together in minutes. After baking, they are coating in a thick copycat krispy kreme glaze and tossed in a cinnamon crumb coating.
Serves: 12 Doughnuts
  • Pumpkin Doughnuts:
  • 1 Box Yellow Cake Mix (Or spice mix)
  • 1 (15 oz.) Can Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Krispy Kreme Copycat Glaze:
  • ⅓ Cup Butter
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ⅛ Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ½ Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 4-6 Tablespoons Whole Milk
  • Crumb Coating:
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt
  • ¾ Cup All Purpose Flour
  1. Pumpkin Doughnuts: Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a standard doughnut pan with nonstick cooking spray or if using a nonstick pan you can omit this step. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Mixture will be very thick and will appear that there isn't enough liquid to mix. Keep folding with a rubber spatula and slowly the batter will come together. Spoon the batter into a large plastic ziplock bag, cutting off the tip so that you can pipe the batter into the pan. Fill each doughnut cavity two-thirds of the way full. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool the doughnuts completely. Dunk each doughnut in the prepared glaze and then roll in the crumb mixture.
  2. Krispy Kreme Copycat Glaze: In a small saucepan, melt the butter on medium low heat. Add in the remaining ingredients. Whisk until smooth. Off the heat and set aside until ready to use. If the glaze becomes too thick before you can glaze your donuts, add a splash of milk and whisk it in.
  3. Crumb Coating: In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add in the remaining ingredients, minus the flour. Stir in the flour slowly and cook on low heat for 3-5 minutes. The mixture will be very crumbly. Cool before using.
