My doughnut pan is still one of my favorite kitchen investments; and when I say investments, I’m talking only $10. If you want to be a doughnut-making Bitch like me, you’re going to want to purchase this pan to get started.
I loved how my glazed pumpkin doughnut recipe turned out last fall. So, when I was deciding on a dish to bring to my friend’s brunch party this weekend, I knew I wanted to try a new doughnut recipe.
This cinnamon doughnut is amazingly simple to make, and the flavor is classic enough to please everyone. You can whip it up and bake the doughnuts, in less than 30 minutes. I love uncomplicated recipes for busy mornings and party prep!
– 1 cup + 2 tbsp. flour
– 1/2 cup light brown sugar
– 1/2 tsp. salt
– 1 tsp. baking powder
– 1/2 cup milk (I used skim milk)
– 1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon (if you want more cinnamon flavor, add a bit more)
– 2 1/2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
– 1 large egg
– 2 tsp. granulated sugar
Next up, the glaze:
– 2 tbsp. milk (again, I used skim milk)
– 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
– 1 tsp. cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
2. Spray 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 (mixture will be very thick, I used my fingers a bit to spread into pan), and bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the doughnuts spring back when lightly pressed. 5. Allow doughnuts to cool a few minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire wrack to cool for a few more minutes—I used a fork to pull the doughnuts out of the pan.
6. For the glaze: 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!
