Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Yesterday morning, I came down the stairs to find my hubby making these donuts! He loves to make breakfasts on the weekends, so each Saturday and Sunday, its a fun, new surprise seeing what creations he has come up with! These donuts were a HUGE hit with the family, especially the kids! Since they are baked, not fried, they are a little healthier for you…..okay, don’t go thinking I called these health food, but hey, baking them saved a few calories, right?? These were fluffy, moist, and packed with the cinnamon sugar flavor that is sooooo yummy! My hubby doubled the recipe, but one batch will make about 9 donuts!! Enjoy!!

  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
