Snickerdoodle Doughnuts

My mother-in-law got me a doughnut pan for Christmas and I finally put it to use yesterday morning. I've seen tons of delicious looking recipes all over the Internet and have wanted to make my own for a long time now. I was really surprised at how easy they were to make, how little time it actually took for them to bake and how incredibly good they were!

I found this particular recipe in a book I read a couple weeks ago. Our family has always loved snickerdoodle cookies, so what's not to love about doughnut filled with all kinds of cinnamon-sugar goodness? The kids all got to enjoy these for breakfast, along with some fresh fruit and they loved them. They're best served warm from the oven; they have a wonderful light, fluffy texture. So far I'm loving my new pan, I can't wait to try some new variations.

Baked Snickerdoodle Doughnuts

2 c cake flour
3/4 c sugar
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 c milk
2 eggs
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla

Cinnamon-Sugar topping:
3 tbsp butter, melted
1/3 c sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl whisk together cake flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Add in milk, eggs, butter and vanilla; mix all together to combine. Careful not to overmix. Lightly grease doughnut pan. Fill each cavity of the pan about 1/2-3/4 full with batter. Bake for 9 mins or until donuts spring back when touched. They will be light in color. Let cool for a couple mins, then remove from pan. While those cool, in a small bowl combine cinnamon and sugar for topping. Brush each doughnut with melted butter and then dip into cinnamon-sugar mixture. Shake off excess and serve immediately.

Makes 12-14 doughnuts
