Recipe: Baked cinnamon sugar donuts

Posted February 5, 2015

Who doesn’t love melt in your mouth donuts?  However, the extra frying of donuts adds so many unwanted calories and tons of fat!  Try this super simple recipe with your lil’ chef at home.

You can purchase the donut pans at many locations throughout the Triangle including Bed Bath and Beyond and Target.  For an extra fancy treat, you can add colored sugar rather than cinnamon sugar!

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

2 cups Bisquick
2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted
