Pumpkin spice donut holes

Cinnamon, sugar, pumpkin… Keeping with the pumpkin craze I decided to make a batch of baked pumpkin spice donut holes (aka timbits). I simply used a box of classic yellow cake mix, and substituted pumpkin puree for the eggs, adding some pumpkin pie spice. The results were delicious all on their own! Add the cinnamon/ sugar mixture and you have a perfect pumpkin treat for fall, amazing with a cup of coffee or chai latte. The best part about this… I had the chance to use my cake pop maker (alternately you could use a mini muffin pan).

Pumpkin spice donut holes:

Makes approximately 40 donut holes (give or take what Tommy & my husband swiped first)…

classic yellow cake mix

1 cup of water

1/3 cup of oil

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/2 stick of unsalted butter, melted

1/3 cup of sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1. Preheat you cake pop maker. Use cooking spray or butter to prepare the pan.

2. Blend cake mix, water, oil, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl on medium speed for 2 minutes.

3. Bake in cake pop maker for 5 – 6 minutes, opening the lid for the last minute of baking (or as instructed by your cake pop maker).

4. Using a pastry brush, coat the cooled donut holes with melted butter. Mix the sugar & cinnamon, and roll donuts in the mixture.

I will definitely make these again as they were gone in no time…
