Apple Cinnamon Sugar Donuts


My poor little Callum has been sick with a cold for the last two days.

He stayed home from school and instead of staying in bed he asked if we could make a treat.

Who am I to say no to that kind of request?

My mom gave me donut pans for my birthday so we decided to give donut making a try.

It was a cold and snowy day and apple cinnamon donuts with a nice cup of tea might make everyone feel warm and cosy and Callum thought they would definitely cure his cold.

Apple Cinnamon Sugar Donuts


1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

2/3 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup grated apple ( I used two gala apples)

1/4 cup butter milk (I didn’t have any so I used 1/4 teaspoon vinegar and 1% milk, let sit for 5 minutes and voila you have buttermilk)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees

Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt

In a separate bowl combine the eggs, sugar, apple, buttermilk, oil and vanilla


Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined

Spray your donut pans with cooking spray

You can spoon your batter into the tray but I prefer to use a piping bag. It makes things so much easier


Bake for 10-12 minutes

Refrigerate any left over batter

Let cool in pan for a few minutes

Turn out onto a cooling rack and cool completely


Now it is time for the cinnamon sugar

I doubled up two brown paper bags and poured in 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. Give it a good shake to combine.

Using a pastry brush coat the donuts with melted butter


Put the donuts into the bag and shake until the donuts are totally coated in the sugar mixture


These are so delicious!


Callum had a blast making them and eating them


I figured I would throw in this random picture of Callum sniffing the vanilla. It is just so cute!

This recipe made 12 large and 12 mini donuts. I am pretty sure they won’t last too long!

  1. That looks like such a fun thing to do! Baking the donuts opens up a whole new world of less mess and a bit more healthy too. :o) Hope Callum is feeling better.
