Cinnamon and Sugar Donuts


Aren't these donuts gorgeous!! Look at all of that cinnamon and sugar! ;) You probably have all the ingredients it takes to make these pretty little things in your pantry which makes it great for a last minute, I don't know what to make for breakfast, kind of morning. Which was me yesterday. You will need a donut pan if you want them to look like these, but if you don't you can always make mini muffins or regular size muffins as well with this recipe.

1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup margarine, melted
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup margarine, melted
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I used more because we LOVE cinnamon)

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease the pan you choose to use. Donut, mini or regular size muffin pan.
  • Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup margarine, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Stir in the milk, then mix in the baking powder and flour until just combined. Fill the prepared pan, each section half full.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the tops are lightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • While baking, place 1/4 cup of melted margarine in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of sugar with the cinnamon. Remove donuts from their cups, dip each muffin in the melted margarine (I like to brush the margarine on instead of dipping. It makes me feel like I'm putting less margarine on) and roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Let cool and serve.
