Are these the best cinnamon donuts in the entire universe?! We think they are!! These are super fluffy and coated in decadent cinnamon sugar.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180•C and spray a donut pan.⁠

  2. Whisk the flour, protein, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Pour in the remaining wet ingredients starting with 1/2 cup of milk and adjusting as needed. Mix well with a wooden spoon to combine. You want the batter to be similar to cake batter; not too thick but not too runny.⁠

  3. Spoon or pipe the batter into the donut pan, filling about 3/4 of the way full. Be careful not to overfill, as the donuts will rise.⁠

  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.⁠

  5. Let cool for a few minutes in the pan, then carefully transfer to a wire rack.⁠

  6. Combine the sugar and cinnamon for the coating. Lightly brush or dip the donuts in butter than the sugar. Enjoy!⁠

    Recipe Notes: I used lite nuttelex as my butter and white spelt flour from woolies.⁠
