Serving size

1 donut


130 Calories



  • 1 14 cups (310mL) moist-style devil's food cake mix

  • 12 cup (125mL) canned pure pumpkin

  • 14 cup (60mL) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute


  • 13 cup (75mL) Truvía® Calorie-Free Sweetener Spoonable

  • 1 tsp (5mL) cornstarch

  • 1 Tbsp (15mL) light whipped butter or light buttery spread

  • 14 tsp (1mL) vanilla extract

  • 1 drop pink food coloring

  • 1 Tbsp (15mL) rainbow sprinkles


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Spray a 6-cavity standard donut pan with nonstick spray.

  • 2.

    In a large bowl, mix cake mix, pumpkin, egg whites/substitute, and 14 cup (60mL) water until completely smooth and uniform. Evenly distribute batter into the rings of the donut pan. Gently smooth out the tops. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a donut comes out mostly clean, about 12 minutes.

  • 3.

    Meanwhile, place a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Let donuts cool completely, about 10 minutes in the pan and 15 minutes on the cooling rack.

  • 4.

    In a wide microwave-safe bowl (a little larger than one of the donuts), whisk Truvía® Calorie-Free Sweetener with cornstarch until uniform.

  • 5.

    Place 2 Tbsp (30mL) water in a small microwave-safe bowl. Add butter, vanilla extract, and food coloring. Microwave for 20 seconds, or until water is hot and butter has melted. Mix well, and add to the Truvía® Calorie-Freel Sweetener mixture. Vigorously whisk until completely smooth and uniform.

  • 6.

    Microwave for 1 minute and 20 seconds, or until mixture is fully bubbling. Let cool slightly.

  • 7.

    One at a time, dunk the tops of the donuts into the topping, coating the top halves. Return to the cooling rack, top with sprinkles, and allow to set.

*These donuts have 130 calories and 12 grams of sugar per serving compared to regular sugar-sweetened version which have 160 calories and 20 grams of sugar.
