Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts


My husband and I were sipping our coffee and trying to figure out what we wanted for breakfast. When my youngest child entered the room, he asked for donuts!

My husband gladly consented and leapt into action, as it had been a long time. We opted to bake cinnamon sugar donuts because everyone loves them, and they were ready to eat in no time!
