Ingredients

For the donut

  • 2 1/4 Cups flour
  • 1 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 Cup milk
  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons vanilla extract

For the glaze

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 3/4 Cups white sugar
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

For the donut

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together the flour, sugar, spices, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, butter, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients just until combined. Place into donut molds and bake for 15 minutes or until they spring back slightly when touched. Cool slightly before glazing.

 

 

For the glaze

Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Drizzle over the donuts.

Cinnamon Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Cinnamon Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
