Buttermilk and Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts Recipe
- Doughnut Dough
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
- 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 stick butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Sift all the dry ingredients together for the doughnuts into a large bowl.
- In another bowl whisk together the eggs, vanilla, buttermilk, and melted butter. Stir the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture, just until combined.
- Spoon the batter into a doughnut formed baking pan, sprayed with cooking spray, to about ¾’s full for each doughnut. (A cake decorating tool or plastic bag with the corner cut works really good for this.) Bake the doughnuts for 17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- While the doughnuts are baking prepare the topping by melting 1 stick of butter in a saucepan on low heat. In a small bowl mix together the cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
- When the doughnuts are done let them cool for several minutes and then turn the pan over to remove the doughnuts. (Careful, they are round, and like to roll)
- Dip the doughnuts into the butter, and then the sugar, on one side, or both. Enjoy
