My guy and I love a good donut. Especially one coated in the delight of cinnamon and sugar. I’ve tried making some baked donuts before with no fail, but they just didn’t live up to their fried friends.
I have to warn you though, this recipe is trouble. As in, these are too easy to make and taste even better than the ones I was already loving at a shop near our apartment. They have the perfect sweetness and cakey crumb.
Like I said. Trouble.
Since it’s Valentine’s this weekend, I decided to make a few chocolate coated ones with little loving messages done in icing sugar and water. Too easy.
Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 large egg
1/3 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
2 tbsp honey
1/4 cup greek yogurt
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Cinnamon Sugar Topping
1 cup white superfine sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
coconut oil cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 and spray a non-stick donut pan with cooking spray.
In a medium size bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg and set aside.
In a small bowl whisk together the wet ingredients and stir into the dry mixture (the mixture will be fairly thick). Scoop the mixture into a piping bag or zip lock bag with one of the corners snipped and pipe the mixture into the donut pan. This mixture will make exactly six donuts so don’t go too crazy pipping a lot into one donut.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Pop your donuts out onto a wire rack to let cool. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Spay a donut lightly with coconut oil cooking spray and coat in the cinnamon sugar mix.
