1. Combine the cake mix, pumpkin puree, egg, and water into a bowl and mix until the dry ingredients are incorporated.
2. Spoon mix into the donut maker and bake for 7-8 minutes until the tops spring back or bake in the oven using donut pans (use the cake mix guide for directions on how long to bake).
3. Prepare maple glaze by combining powdered sugar, milk and maple syrup until you have a thin glaze. Add more powdered sugar if too thin or more milk or maple syrup if too thin.
4. Dip the cooled donuts onto the glaze and sprinkle with pecans or sparkling sugar (optional).
These mini donuts were a hit with both kids and adults and the pumpkin added a nice flavor and texture. This is also an easy activity you can do with you kids. Although not pictured, my daughter had so much fun mixing, dipping and sprinkling the entire way.
