Baked Maple Cinnamon Donut Holes

We had breakfast for dinner today and on the menu was baked maple cinnamon donuts. OMG they were SO good, Dh was begging me to make more! This recipe is super simple and very toddler friendly, Adam was able to help make (and eat) the donuts and he loved it. I didn’t have a doughnut pan so I made-do with what I had, a regular muffin pan and mini muffin pan. They turned out more donut hole-ish in the mini muffin pan, so next time I’ll just use that :)

 

Gather your ingredients: flour, vanilla yogurt, maple syrup, an egg, butter, cinnamon, sugar, baking powder and soda, lemon juice, canola oil, and salt.

Whisk together the dry ingredients in one bowl. Then mix the egg, yogurt, maple syrup, oil, and lemon juice in a smaller bowl. Make a hole in the dry mixture and pour the wet mixture into it. Fold everything together until combined.

Scoop the batter into a greased muffin pan (I used cooking spray with flour in it) and bake at 400* for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Let cool for a few minutes then flip the donuts onto a cooling rack.

Get your melted butter and cinnamon sugar mix together for an assembly line. Dip a doughnut into the melted butter, then the cinnamon sugar, then place it back on the rack. And repeat.

And enjoy! :)

  27. Cinnamon is like the worst spice ever
    I hate cinnamon
    GAHHHHHHH

  28. I made these with my friend and our dough was much stickier than it appeared in your pictures. All of our measurements were right, but they just didn’t turn out! They LOOK fine, but they are very dense.

    Advice?

    • Hi,
      The first time I made these, I got the same results as you. The dough was very thick and gooey and didn’t look like the pics. I just made them again, but I added enough MILK until the dough was smooth and easy to pour, but not runny (like a regular muffin mix). Before I baked them, I topped them with just a little bit of diced baked apples (already seasoned with sugar and cinnamon) I had in the freezer. I only used about a 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon for each muffin. I filled each muffin cup about 3/4 full before topping with the apples. The apples baked down into the muffins very nicely. I have to say they turned out much, much better! I will definitely make them again.

  29. I don’t have yogurt. What’s the need for it/are there any substitutions?

  30. Daniela N. says:

    These make a delicious cold morning breakfast. And I love cinnamon!

  31. Oh yum! These are so simple, yet so good ;)

  32. Cheryl (@loucheryl) says:

    OMG, these look great! I could use one right now with my coffee.

  33. Nicole U says:

    Yum! I have never made donuts before. I never new that they were so simple to make. I am going to give this recipe a try.

  34. Thanks for the great recipe! I just made a gluten free version of these this morning – I sub’d the wheat flour with 1 cup all-purpose gluten free flour and 1/2 cup cornstarch and sub’d the yogurt for sour cream. Yummy!

  35. These look fantastic! My family would go crazy for them. I haven’t made homemade donuts in ages. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  36. Really tasty, love the soft warm middle of these, plus they’re not fried so I can eat more of them!!! :P

  37. Can’t wait to try these! They look scrumptious!
