Cinnamon Sugar Mini Donuts
Baked mini donuts with a cinnamon sugar topping, just like at the fair!
For the Donuts:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg you can decrease to 1/4 teaspoon if you want a more mild flavor
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 large egg lightly beaten
1 cup plain greek yogurt
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter melted
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
For the Topping:
4 Tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Lightly coat your mini donut pan with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix together 4 tablespoons of sugar with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and set aside.
In a large bowl, gently whisk together the flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.
Melt the butter and cool slightly.
In another bowl, lightly beat the egg. Add the yogurt, milk, butter and vanilla and briefly whisk to combine.
Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry, taking care not to overmix.
Using a pastry bag or plastic sandwhich bag with the tip cut, pipe the batter into the donut molds, filling each well no more than 2/3 full.
Bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. If using the mini donut maker, bake 4-5 minutes.
After removing from the oven, toss the warm donuts in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat and serve immediately.
