Cinnamon Sugar Donuts Recipe


  • 8 T butter, divided
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1 c sugar, divided
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 2 1/2 t cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease mini donut pan(s) and set aside for later.
In a small pan, melt 5 tablespoons butter over low heat. Add cream cheese to mostly melted butter and stir. Remove from heat.
Add flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg to large bowl. Stir to mix thoroughly.
In liquid measuring cup, add the milk, egg, and vanilla. Whisk until incorporated. Add butter and cream cheese.
Pour liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients, and mix just until white streaks disappear. Do not overmix.
Add batter to bag and snip a small hole in the bottom. Pipe batter into donut pan(s), filling just slightly over half way.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes until donuts spring back.
While baking, melt remaining three tablespoons of butter. In a small bowl, add remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon, then stir and set aside.
Let donuts cool for one minute, brush one donut at a time with butter on the top side and dip top and bottom into cinnamon sugar mixture to coat. Repeat with each remaining donut.
Serve immediately. Let leftovers cool thoroughly, then store in tightly sealed container on counter for up to two days. Freeze anything remaining for up to a month.
