Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

So, I’m not normally about kitchen tools that are not multi purpose (hello, small kitchen).  But I made an exception for these awesome donut pans.  I got the regular size and mini sized as a wedding gift and I love them!

It is really fun to make your own donuts at home.

Just fill up the wells with your bater of choice (you can even use a cake mix!) bake them off,

and don’t be like me and overfill them.

The other side looked perfect though!

Then just dunk them in butter and roll in cinnamon sugar.

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
Author:
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • Baking spray with flour
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 extra-large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1¼ cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • For the topping:
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 doughnut pans well.
  2. Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  3. Spoon the batter into the baking pans, filling each one a little more than three-quarters full. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then tap the doughnuts out onto a sheet pan.
  4. For the topping, melt the 8 tablespoons of butter in an 8-inch saute pan. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Dip each doughnut first in the butter and then in the cinnamon sugar, either on one side or both sides.
