Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

 Sometime ago, I think it was in ... late February?  I don't know.  But my parents and Kaitlin were gone to Arizona to pick up the new boat.  So I was a little lonely.  But Kevin and his roommates were having a yard sale.  So I thought I'd be nice and make them some donuts to munch on.

By the way, go get yourself a donut pan asap!
I found this recipe on and decided they sounded good. Needless to say, they were a hit at the yard sale.

Baked Donuts
for the donuts:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup buttermilk (or make your own with milk and vinegar)
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs butter, melted

for the topping:
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbs cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees.  Lightly spray a donut pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, beat together the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter until well combined.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  5. Fill your donut pan 3/4 full and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the donuts spring back when touched.  Allow to cool slightly before removing from the pan.
  6. To make the topping, mix together the sugars and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  7. Dunk each donut into the melted butter to completely coat and then swirl around in the cinnamon sugar to coat.
