Nothing beats these spiced, buttery doughnuts fresh from the oven — and you get the pleasure of filling your house with their warm, cinnamon scent as they bake.


Tips:

The donuts may also be prepared in two batches in a 12-count mini doughnut pan. Prepare as directed, baking donuts for 5 to 9 minutes.

If you don’t own a donut pan, you can prepare the batter in a regular or mini muffin pan. For a regular muffin pan, spray 6 cups with nonstick cooking spray, fill with batter and bake for 11 to 14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. For a mini muffin pan, spray 12 cups with nonstick cooking spray, fill with batter and bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
