I love a good donut.  Throw in a delicious, sugary topping and I am all for it!  Of course, donuts are usually fried and really aren’t that good for you.  But, my recipe for baked cinnamon sugar donuts is a delicious alternative!  They don’t even taste like they are baked!  They do take a bit to make, but they are SOOOOOO worth it.  Enjoy!

  • Cinnamon Sugar Topping
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted

  • Cover with a clean towel and allow to sit for 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
