These are so good, and so easy to make! Honestly, I'd rather make donuts than cookies for Nate. They are just so quick and easy! Cinnamon sugar is one of Nate's favorite dessert flavors, he loves cinnamon rolls, churros, etc. I knew these would be a hit with him. I saw this idea over at Crumbs and Chaos, the same site where I found these cookies 'n cream donuts. If you're looking for an easy dessert, give these a try!
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 stick butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Generously spray a donut pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.
In a small bowl, beat together buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter until well combined.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well until combined.
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.
To make topping, mix together the sugars and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Dunk one side of each donut in melted butter to completely coat and the swirl around in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat.
