Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
PEOPLE. Today I am sharing the most scrumptious desserts disguised as breakfast: baked cinnamon sugar donuts. Where do I even begin? The soft, cakey dough. The warm cinnamon sugar coating. Or the fact that they’re baked, not fried.
Take it all in, friends.

How to make baked cinnamon sugar donuts?
If you don’t know it, donuts are one of my favorite sweet treats. And thanks to this donut pan, it couldn’t be easier. You get a perfectly round donut every time, and you get to skip the whole fried food guilt thing (not that you should feel guilty EVER about donuts). Simply pipe the batter into a grease donut pan, bake, and then dip in cinnamon sugar!
I kid you not in that these donuts were gone within 24 hours of their conception. People couldn’t get enough of them. And did I mention how easy they are?! Cinnamon sugar is pretty much my favorite flavor combo (duh), and these baked donuts are no exception!
So go ahead. Make these donuts. You will not be disappointed.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a standard sized donut pan and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine egg, yogurt, vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla extract. Carefully pour the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing until just combined. Mixture will be slightly lumpy and thick.
Spoon batter into a large ziplock bag and cut a ½ inch hole in one corner, creating a makeshift piping bag. Pipe the dough into the donut molds, filling ¾ of the way to the top of the molds. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before coating with cinnamon sugar.
To make the cinnamon sugar, combine both ingredients in a shallow bowl. Using a small brush, brush each donut with the melted butter, then dip each side into the sugar mixture. I dipped each donut in twice for an extra sugary coating 🙂 Serve!
