Mini Doughnuts Recipe Is Too Cute to Resist

Mary Hawkins Yum!

mini doughnutsThey 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

2 eggs

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

1 cup milk

Glaze:

1/3 cup powdered sugar

2-3 tablespoons milk

Topping:

1/4 cup granulated sugar (white)

1-2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions:

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.
