Estimated values based on one serving size.


  1. Note: make your own pumpkin pie spice by mixing together 2 tablespoons cinnamon, 1 tablespoon ginger, 1 tablespoon nutmeg, and ½ tablespoon cloves; use 2 teaspoons in the dough and 3 tablespoons for the topping mixture.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, egg, and melted butter.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with rubber spatula until fully incorporated.
  5. Heat the oil in a large, high-walled pan untilt he temperature reaches 325˚F (160˚C).
  6. While oil is heating, use your hands to shape and roll the pumpkin dough into balls. (Greasing your hands with oil will make this process much easier).
  7. Fry the dough balls in the hot oil until golden brown, 4-5 minutes. (For best results, fry only 3-4 at a time).
  8. Make the topping: In a large bowl, mix together the sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
  9. Drain the donut holes on a paper towel, then immediately transfer to the bowl of pumpkin pie spice-sugar mix. Gently toss to coat.
