Fall is in the air and you if are anything like me, fall time is pumpkin spice everything time. Once I feel the crisp chilly air, see the leaves starting to change, I am totally in fall mode.

The best part is that they are incredibly easy to make. If you’re a pumpkin spice lover, you’re going to absolutely LOVE these donuts.

When it comes to donuts, we are connoisseurs. While we can go gaga over a maple bacon donut, there’s something truly special about the simplicity of this pumpkin spice donut. It’s sweet and flavourful. You don’t need a fancy donut maker either, you can just use a simple donut pan. After you’ve baked these donuts, you dip them in butter and then you sugar them! Firstly, make sure you scroll down to get the full recipe to print it out.

After you’ve cooled them on your cooling tray. Make sure to only coat the donuts if you’re going to enjoy them right away. However, you can hold off coating them until you are ready to eat them. I don’t know if you’ll get around to coating them later because I guarantee you’ll love them! There may be none left.
