Cinnamon Sugar baked donuts

Donuts! Donuts! Donut

I’ve been craving donuts for a while now and thought, “Hello!!! Bryce! You’re a Baker, just make some!”. So I did. This is the recipe that worked out for me. I also bought a donut pan that I really wanted to try out. As you can see it worked pretty well.

Prep Time: 10 min

Bake Time: 12 min

Total Time: 22 min



  •  5 tblsp unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar

  • ½ cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ rounded teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour

Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

  • 113g (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ well-rounded tablespoon cinnamon



  1. Preheat oven to 350F). Lightly grease donut pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together baking powder, salt nutmeg and flour. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together egg, milk and vanilla. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or using a hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  5. Add the wet ingredients in two parts (mixture may look curdled), alternating with the dry ingredients. Mix last addition of dry ingredients just until combined; do not overmix.
  6. Spoon the batter into a piping bag or a large ziplock bag with a corner cut off. Pipe batter into the donut pan, filling each donut cavity ½ full.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until donuts are golden
  8. While the donuts are baking, melt the butter for the coating. In another bowl mix the cinnamon and sugar together until completely combined. Pour the cinnamon-sugar mixture into a shallow bowl
  9. When they’re just cool, dip each donut quickly in the melted butter, gently shake off excess butter, then put the donut in the cinnamon-sugar bowl.
  10. When coated, gently shake off excess
  11. Serve and Enjoy!
