homemade mini sugared cinnamon donuts

These sweet Mini sugared cinnamon donuts are a nostalgic replica of mini donuts you can buy at fall fairs or midways! Simply cook and roll in a sugar and cinnamon mixture while still warm.

Yield: 25 mini donuts

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 – 12 minutes



  • ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (120ml) milk


  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease muffins tins with parchment paper.   
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Whisk together.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  4. Using an electric mixer beat together butter and ½ cup white sugar until smooth and creamy. Add 2 large eggs, beat together until smooth and creamy.
  5. Add flour and milk mixtures into the butter mixture. Stir until batter is smooth.
  6. Add batter into a piping bag or spoon mixture into muffin tin until ¾ full.
  7. How to create donut holes? There are different ways to create donut holes. You can either bake the donut batter into a muffin, then carve out the centres. Alternatively, fill the centre of each muffin tin with a greased marble or rolled up piece of tin foil and cut out after cooking.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 10 to 12 minutes.
  9. Cool and serve!
