Cinnamon Bun Donuts

These donuts are so so good!  They are also very easy to make.  My husband said they didn't look very good but tasted fantastic!  So there you go!  I of course had to double the recipe because 6 donuts was just not enough for our family!

Rating: 5
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes
Yield: 6 baked donuts
Serving Size: 1 donut

  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose baking flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used vanilla almond milk)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • For the glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons milk (again, here I used vanilla almond milk)
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
  2. Lightly grease a doughnut pan; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, melted butter, and egg. Gently fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture - don't over mix!
  4. Spoon mixture into prepared doughnut pan, and bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the donuts spring back when lightly pressed. Allow doughnuts to cool a few minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire wrack to cool for a few more minutes.
  5. For the glaze:
  6. Combine milk, confectioners' sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl wide enough for dipping the donuts. Mix until the mixture has been fully combined. Add a touch more milk if the glaze seems too thick; add a touch more sugar if the glaze seems too thin.
  7. Dip the top of each donut in the glaze; repeat with all donuts. Allow glaze to set (about 15 minutes) then dig in!
The batter is very thick! Spoon it into the pan, or pour it into a ziplock bag, snip off the end, and pipe the batter into the molds.
