Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cake Donuts

I woke up this morning in a panic! I realized it had been to long without donuts!!!! I knew I had to change that ASAP. Then began the mission.

I had a open can of pumpkin that needed to be used so I knew what must be done. See, in my house pumpkin season is all year. Forget that only in fall nonsense.


Lets get started!

Tools to get the job done:

  • 1/4th Teaspoon

    • 7g Coconut Flour

Bob’s Red Mill – Organic Coconut Flour, 16 Ounces

  • 20g Cake Flour
  • 6g Brown Sugar Blend
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein(26g) I used ETB. To save 30% head over to and use the code ‘chron30’
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4th Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

Donut Creation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a bowl place all your dry mix and combine well
  3. In a separate bowl place all wet mix and combine well
  4. Slowly add your dry mix into your wet mixing as you go until combined
  5. Spray your muffin pan with non stick spray and pour in your batter
  6. Place in the middle of your oven for 8 minutes
  7. Remove and set on cooling rack for 5 minutes.
  8. After 5 minutes remove from pan and place back on rack to finish cooling
  9. In a small bowl place your frosting and microwave it until it becomes runny
  10. Dip each donut in the frosting until everyone is covered
  11. **Optional step. Top with your favorite toppings! Half I covered in crushed cinnabun cereal and the other half I topped with pumpkin spice morsals! Yum!
