They may not be very easy on the waistline, but sometimes it's impossible to resist sinking your teeth into a warm, delicious doughnut. But if you want to feel less guilty about splurging on breakfast, then you should definitely give this Cinnamon Sugar Mini Doughnuts recipe from Lifetime Moms a try.
OMG. Mini doughnuts. Is this a genius creation or what? They're perfectly delectable -- yet almost bite-sized, so you can indulge without having to spend an extra hour on the treadmill. (Total win-win, right?)
Although something tells me it's impossible to eat just one, which may defeat the purpose of making these small treats instead of the traditional larger version.
Oh, what the hell -- everyone deserves to let loose a little now and then. I can't wait to try these!
Cinnamon Sugar Mini Doughnuts
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup milk
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar (white)
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray doughnut pans with non-stick cooking spray. If you don't have doughnut pans, you can also make these in mini muffins pans.
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, butter, and milk. Fill doughnut pan about 1/2 full with batter.
Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool slightly.
Combine ingredients for glaze in a small bowl; you want the consistency runny. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Dip doughnut into glaze; let excess drip off.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
