**Erythritol value may vary based on your choice of sweetener


  • 1 14 cups moist-style devil's food cake mix

  • 12 cup canned pure pumpkin

  • 14 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

  • 13 cup of zero-calorie Truvía® Natural Sweetener Spoonable***

  • 1 tsp cornstarch

  • 1 Tbsp light whipped butter or light buttery spread

  • 14 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 drop pink food coloring

  • 1 Tbsp rainbow sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 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 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® Natural Sweetener with cornstarch until uniform.

  5. Place 2 Tbsp 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® Natural 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.
