Baked Cinnamon Donuts Doughnuts

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Seasoned Cook

SO SIMPLE! Easy to make and full of cinnamon flavor! The topping goes on the donut before baking and offers a crusty sugar-cinnamon coating. Makes a great weekend breakfast or snack. Leftovers (if any) freeze well.

Very delicious and simple! I just bought a donut pan and wanted to try something that didn't seem too difficult to pull together on a Saturday morning. I stuck to the recipe, only changed the sugar---for the white, used 1 cup Splenda, and kept the remaining amounts of white and brown sugars the same. And, the kitchen smelled wonderful with cinnamon baking!
