Friday Fatassery on a Tuesday: Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Hoo boy. I got a donut pan and asses are about to get a lot fatter up in here. I worked from home on Friday and had these mixed and done before I would've even stepped off the train in Center City.

At least they're baked and not fried? Of course, they are dipped in butter sooo...

Thanks to my Soul Sister Ina Garten for the original recipe. I halved hers and altered it a bit.

Baking spray with flour
1 cup flour
3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of whole milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the topping: 4 tablespoons of butter, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a donut pan well.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry until just combined.

Spoon batter into donut pan, filling each one a little more than 3/4 full.  Bake for 17 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for five minutes, then tap the donuts out.

Topping: melt 4 tablespoons of butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Dip each donut in the butter then in the sugar - one side or both if you're feeling frisky. It was Friday so they got a double dip in my house.

Pass the donuts, friend.
Scarf them down while they are hot.
Elastic pants rule.

  8. Girl, you know I have a serious donut problem here lately. You're killin me Smalls!

  9. I never even knew donut pans existed. Shows you my experience in making donuts.
    They look delicious!

  10. Oh, man. This is exactly what happened to me when I bought a little deep fat fryer. I instantly went up a dress size. I'm still trying to master donuts, but mine have to be gluten free so they're a bit of a tricky beast apparently. I might try modifying your baked recipe... Hmmm...

  11. Oh my gaaaaahhhhhh, these look so good. I think I just got some fat-assery from looking at these photos haha

  12. YES! I've been waiting for this since you talked about them yesterday... PINNING! My donut pan that I found last year is one of my favorite kitchen pieces ever :-D

  13. These look amazing and Ina Garten is my hero, so I know these are delicious. Maybe I should be glad I don't have a donut pan. Maybe I need to get one, ASAP!

  14. Yum!!! Give me these donuts!!! Pinning this so I can get my ass in gear and buy that donut pan!

  15. holy crap, these look really good. And I'm not just saying that. Gimme!

  16. Yum!!!! If there's one thing I love it's a Fat Friday, and I would definitely want to eat all of those donuts on a Fat Friday! They look so good!

  17. Oh my gosh can you courier some of these to my door? They look sooooo good!

  18. I've got a guest room and a kitchen (both new) with your name on it if you'll come to Dallas and make these for me. These look amazingly delicious.

  19. I need these. In my belly. NOW. YUM!!!

  20. Oh yum! I've never attempted to make donuts...baking in general isn't my thing but your recipe sounds amazing!

  21. I have eyed these donut pans more than once. So tempting.

  22. i hate cinnamon.... but i will eat cinnamon donuts until the cows come home, or until i become a cow. they are amazing.

  23. I've never made donuts at home, but this recipe actually sounds pretty doable. (And I'm not a baker!) My mouth was watering looking at the pictures and imagining all the buttery, cinnamony, sugary goodness. Mmmm.

  24. Thanks for the recipe because I have a donut pan that has been unused for like 2 years!
