Get your pumpkin spice fix with this tasty dirt bomb recipe. Unlike fried donuts, this recipe is a little lighter and, since no hot oil is involved, a lot less messy. These dirt bombs, or baked donuts, are irresistible cakey muffins that are spiked with nutmeg and ginger, and rolled in melted butter and cinnamon sugar.

Pumpkin Spice Dirt Bomb Recipe

Your kitchen is going to smell amazing as you whip up these autumn treats. I love this recipe for beginner bakers. The mix really keeps things simple. Of course you can make a simple cake mix for the base of this recipe, but we love Miss Jones Baking Co. Organic Vanilla Cake Mix. It's a great mix because it's organic and non-gmo, vegan, dairy-free and nut-free. I advise keeping a few boxes on hand for your baking needs.

Note: if you don't have mini pans, don't sweat it. I used our regular muffin tins and filled them about 1/3 full and also tried Madeline sheets. It's all good when there's pumpkin spice involved!
