Cinnamon Sugar Cake Donuts

20 Jan


I was recently gifted a donut pan and couldn’t wait to break it in! For my first go around, I figured I’d use the basic Wilton recipe that came with the pan. But instead of rolling the donuts in butter and cinnamon sugar, I just sprinkled some on before baking them to add a little extra flavor and crunch. (plus why add more calories when you get the same taste?)

These donuts were so delicious, especially when fresh out of the oven. They’re really easy to toss together and would make a nice homemade breakfast when you have friends or family over. I can’t wait to try different varieties and maybe get a mini donut pan too!

Cinnamon Sugar Cake Donuts

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup cake flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Cinnamon Sugar for topping

Yield: 1 dozen donuts

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Beat until just combined. Spoon batter into the donut pan, until about 2/3 full. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top of each donut.

Bake for 7-9 minutes or until the tops of the donuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan for 4-5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to completely cool.
