  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar

  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lightly grease two doughnut pans with cooking spray. If you don't have a doughnut pan, you can use a standard muffin pan, instead. Set aside.

  • In your mixer's bowl beat together vegetable oil, eggs, sugar and pumpkin puree.
  • Add flour mixture and continue to beat until well combined.
  • Fill the cavities of the doughnut pans 3/4 full.
  • Bake the doughnuts for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
If you are using a muffin pan, bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
In the meantime, prepare the Salted Caramel Glaze
  • Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until completely combined and smooth.
  • Dip the cooled donuts in the glaze and serve.
