READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Cupcake-Princess

These are great to make when you feel like donuts, but you dont feel like frying. Dip these in glazes or dip in melted butter then roll in them cinnamon sugar.

I made these in my new donut maker (looks like a waffle iron). These have been my favorite plain recipe so far. I always sub buttermilk with plain yogurt and milk, so for this I used 1/2 c milk and 1/4 c plain yogurt. Nutmeg is subtle and adds a nice flavor. I have also cut the recipe in half so I am not making so many temptations.
