Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

When it came time to bring a birthday snack to my daughter's preschool, I decided to forgo the usual cupcake and whip up some baked donuts. Baked donuts are really nothing like what you buy at the donut shop but are rather cakey and muffin-like. I have no complaints about that. And when you dip them in butter and roll them around in cinnamon and sugar, they taste like quite the indulgent treat.
Once I bought my donut pan, I started using it all the time. These are a nice basic baked donut recipe (perfect for those finicky preschoolers -- oh, and the rest of us). You can consider this your gateway baked donut.

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts


from Ina Garten
 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 2 TBs unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

cinnamon sugar topping:
  • 8 TBs (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir the wet mixture into the flour mixture.
2. Fill up your donut pan so that each donut is about 3/4 filled with batter. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes, and then tap the donuts out.
3. For the topping: Melt the 8 tablespoons butter in a small pan. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Dip each donut first in the butter and then in the cinnamon sugar. You can do either one side or both sides of each donut.

  1. I love baked doughnuts! I'm just not that confident with hot oil in my kitchen so I'm happy I have my doughnut pan to help me out. Actually, I'm going to bake some chocolate doughnuts for a charity sale tonight. With sprinkles to make them look cuter, you know ;)

  3. What a wonderful "donut" solution! I really won't deal with hot oil so have always avoided donuts (my Mother used to make such light, airy and yummy-when-hot donuts…), but I will buy the pan and try these, for sure. Thanks! and so glad you came over to visit me!

  4. I had determined that I would never need a donut pan. I was convinced until I saw these photos and now I can't wait for the stores to open. It's not yet 6am and I have THREE HOURS to wait. :)
