A friend, who is an excellent baker, saw that I was trying to do more baking and sent this inagarten recipe my way. Holy moly! These Baked Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts are heavenly, and the bonus for me, pretty much fool proof. What a warm, delicious way to start the day! Great to do with your kids (not mine, who were fast asleep when I made these 🤷‍♀️) Don’t have a donut pan? She recommended rolling up a ball of tinfoil and placing it in the middle of muffin tins. Good morning, indeed! 👩🏻‍🍳. http://barefootcontessa.com/recipes/cinnamon-baked-doughnuts Ingredients: Baking spray with flour, such as Baker’s Joy
2 cups all-purpose flour
1½ cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 extra-large egg, lightly beaten
1¼ cups whole milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
for the topping
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 doughnut pans well

Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined.

Spoon the batter into the baking pans, filling each one a little more than three-quarters full. Bake for 17 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then tap the doughnuts out onto a sheet pan.

For the topping, melt the 8 tablespoons of butter in an 8-inch sauté pan. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Dip each doughnut first in the butter and then in the cinnamon sugar, either on one side or both sides.
