Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease two standard doughnut pans. (If you don’t have doughnut pans, you can make these in standard muffin tins. They just won’t be doughnut shaped…they’ll still be delicious though!)
Beat together the vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, pumpkin, spices, salt, and baking powder until smooth. Stir in flour until just combined.
Use about 1/4 cup of batter to fill each doughnut well. They should be about 3/4 full. Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the doughnuts to cool for about five minutes before loosening the edges. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Meanwhile, whisk together powdered sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract, adding more cream to reach the desired consistency. Add food color. Drizzle glaze over cooled doughnuts and serve with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate.
