Remember when Lori and I mentioned that we were working on a pumpkin donut recipe to share with you all. Lori and I wanted to create a recipe that was easy to follow and we wanted the recipe to be gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free, and yeast free!

Lori and I wanted a soft, flavorful baked donut! We have been making a few different versions at our bakery that we sell at the farmers markets. Making the ‘best’ allergy friendly donut was not an easy task ;) But one challenge we were ready for!

We have been playing around with sooooo many recipes to try to make the best gluten free vegan cake donut! We were looking for a recipe to be easy, light and airy texture, and have good flavor :)

We hope you like this pumpkin baked cake donut as much as we do!!!

Twin Cakes Recipes

Twin Cakes Bakery Recipe: Pumpkin Baked Cake Donut (gluten free, soy free and vegan)


  • 5 tbsp brown rice flour
  • 2 tbsp tapioca
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot
  • 1/2 cup sorghum flour
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or regular sugar)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk **
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (or oil of your choice)

*now we made a donut before that we did not add xanthan gum in and it did come out, but when we did add it into the batter we did notice the texture was better

** we make our own buttermilk using coconut milk and apple cider vinegar

Directions how WE make our gluten free vegan baked donuts: DSC_0010

Add in coconut sugar, pumpkin puree, coconut oil into a bowl


Begin stirring ingredients


Add in dry and stir


End with stirring in the buttermilk ( again we make our own)


Get piping bag ready to fill



Get ready to pipe donut batter into donut pan


Now for the fun part


*note: you do not have to pipe them into pan, but it does help with shape (we have noticed)

Pumpkin donuts ready to go into oven – bake at 350 degrees!


Bake these little guys for about 15 minutes. Pop donuts out of pan and let cool a little bit before glazing. Note: these donuts will be a little delicate when coming out of the pan.

M - nov pics 410 Lori and I were very pleased with these gluten free baked pumpkin donuts!! They came out soft, moist, flavorful, and a light spongy texture :) We hope you go out and give these donuts a try this holiday season for you and your family. And let us know how you liked them!

We are going to make them while we are home for the Thanksgiving holiday for our family to get their opinions!!

Twins Question: Are you a glazed, cinnamon sugar, chocolate, or jam filled donut person?

Have you ever had donut muffin before?

Till next time,
