Cinnamon Sugar Baked Donuts

I have a new obsession that is absolutely not helping with my quest to maintain a slender figure. :)  Donuts people.  Donuts.  Now, these are baked donuts which isn't as bad as a fried one, or at least that's what I keep telling myself.  Fortunately I did the math and these donuts are only 234 calories each which is totally doable!  

So get a donut pan (I got this Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan on Amazon for around $7) and give them a try.  If you're already a baked donut fan please feel free to pass your favorite recipes on to me!

Cinnamon Sugar Baked Donuts
3/4 cup flour 
2 Tbsp cornstarch 
1/3 cup sugar 
1 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt 
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1/4 tsp nutmeg 
1/3 cup buttermilk 
1 egg 
1 Tbsp melted butter 
1 tsp vanilla 

For topping: 
2 Tbsp melted butter 
1/3 cup sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon (mixed together) 

1. Whisk together flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a mixing bowl. 
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla. Add to the dry mixture and stir till just combined. 
3. Spoon batter into a ziplock bag and snip off the corner. Squeeze the batter into a well greased donut pan. 
4. Bake at 375° for 12 minutes. Let cool for a couple minutes, then remove to cooling racks. While still warm, brush all sides of each donut with melted butter, then dip in the cinnamon sugar mixture till well coated.

The recipe makes 6 standard size donuts which was perfect for my crowd.  You could always double the recipe if you need more.  These donuts were a huge hit with my littles and our BFFs that happened to be over for a playdate that morning.  Donuts + rain + besties = Living the Dream
