This easy fall recipe for Pumpkin Streusel Donuts results in a delicious, moist donut! Topped with a brown sugar crumble and cinnamon glaze, you've got to try them!

Do you ever wonder what people say about you when you’re not around?

I don’t. You know why? Because I’m over 40. I think that’s part of getting older. You stop caring what people think. That’s why old men wear black knee socks with white gym shoes.

I happened to run out to the store the other day, and once again it happened to me. I found myself wearing slippers. Of course, it didn’t happen until I was halfway through the store. Granted they are moccasins, so I can kinda get away with it (they weren’t fluffy bunny slippers).

But still. Seriously. This is why cold weather is a killer. I wear slippers all day in the house and leave without giving it a second thought.

It’s a good thing when I returned from my embarrassing shopping trip I had a batch of these delicious Pumpkin Streusel Donuts waiting for me on the counter. I immediately brewed myself some coffee, kicked up my feet (slippers and all) and took time to relax.

Okay, we all know that didn’t actually happen (the relaxing part)….what really happened was more like “in an effort to not think about what just happened I shoved a donut in my mouth as fast as possible, washing it down with some cold coffee that was on my counter top.” This my friends is called, keeping it real.

In all seriousness though, you guys need to try making these. I used my favorite donut pan (THIS ONE) and went to work. The recipe only makes 6 donuts, so it’s super easy and you’ll have them ready in 30 minutes. ENJOY!

Pumpkin Streusel Donuts

Yield: 6 donuts

Prep Time:10 minutes

Cook Time:13-15 minutes

Bake (yes bake!) up a batch of these Pumpkin Streusel Donuts today! All the delicious flavors of fall in one breakfast treat!

Ingredients:

For the donuts:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

For the streusel:

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Spray donut pan (I use this one) with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar until creamy. Add in egg and vanilla, beat until combined.
  3. Blend in pumpkin puree. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Beat until well combined. Batter will be very thick. Spoon into a large plastic resealable bag. Snip off the corner and pipe into donut pans, filling them about 1/2 full.
  4. In a small bowl, combine streusel ingredients with a fork. Sprinkle generously over pumpkin batter. Press streusel gently to the top of batter (it will fill the donut cavity completely at this point).
  5. Bake in 375 degree oven for about 13-15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and cool in pan for about 5 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
  7. Once cooled, whisk together the glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over cooled donuts. Allow to set about 5 minutes and enjoy!

    I made these with gluten free flour and found them incredibly thick and difficult to get into the donut pan. I sold out at the farmers’ market so people did love them. Thinking of putting a small amt of milk in the batter to loosen it up a bit.

    Yummmmy! I have made these multiple times and my whole family loves them! Great recipe and instructions!

    Recipe is delicious! I tripled the recipe to make a large batch for the office. I got 24 out of triple batch of batter. Streusel was so good. I topped it all off with a brown sugar drizzled frosting. I like the brown sugar frosting from banana blondeies from Cookie and Cups website. They were a huge hit. Caution watch the timing mine were good at 12 minutes. 

  8. I used the basic recipe for pumpkin spice donuts today without the streusel and frosting, and did a light brush with a butter/bourbon mixture and dusted with cinnamon sugar.   What a nice recipe for a fall afternoon.  Thank you for the recipe Aimee!

    any idea what the cook time would be if these were made in a mini donut pan?

    Just made these…great recipe! I like a lot of flavor and these do not disappoint! I read through some reviews before tackling this recipe and saw the one about this being too spicy…I did not find it to be too spicy but rather perfectly spiced! Too those that aren’t into a lot of spice I would halve the clove or omit it entirely bc it can be quite strong and the amount this recipe calls for is generous. 
    I essentially followed the recipe as it except that I doubled the vanilla extract (I watch Brunch at Bobby’s and he mentions often that whatever the recipe calls for, when it comes to vanilla extract, he doubles it). Also I have a mini donut pan at home so after referencing a few other recipes I decided on an oven temp of 350 and baked for 10 mins.
    Also I used coconut oil spray to grease the pan and it’s absolutely necessary…I accidentally forget to grease one batch and I had issues getting the donuts out. 
    Overall such a great recipe that I felt compelled to comment on it…easy to put together and an enjoyable process. Moist with flavor and texture and surprisingly not overly sweet!
