  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stick butter melted and cooled
  • 3/4 C milk

  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tbsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease donut tin and set aside.
  • Add flour, sugar, and baking powder to a large bowl and stir to combine.
  • Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in milk.
  • Stir and few times then add in the egg.  Mix well.
  • Add melted butter to the bowl and mix well.
  • Fold in 1/2 tbsp of cinnamon.
  • Spoon your mixture into your donut pan.  I used two heaping tablespoons of batter per donut.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until done.
  • While they are baking, mix up ingredients for coating and add to a brown paper bag.
  • When donuts are done, remove from oven.  Remove from pan immediately and then place in brown paper bag.  Shake to coat.
  • Put on a wire rack to cool.
  • These are best served warm so eat right away or heat in microwave before serving.
