Yesterday was newspaper route day for my boys.   It was cloudy and drizzling rain, so to excite them about getting the job done quickly, I promised Landon and Byron a special treat when they got done with their route!

I got this recipe from my friend, Cinda, and was excited to try it.  These donuts are baked, not fried – a little more healthy that way, and a whole lot easier!


Sugar-and-Spice Doughnuts

1  1/2 cup flour     (I used Jules GF flour)
1 cup sugar      (I used WAY less!)
2 t baking powder
1/2 t  salt
1/4 t  ground cinnamon
1/4 t  ground nutmeg
2 large eggs   (at room temp)
1/4 cup veg oil
1/2 cup milk    (I used DF milk)

Mix dry ingredients.  Mix wet ingredients.  Combine.
Pour into donut pan.   Fill rings about 1/2 full.  (don’t over fill, it will puff up as it bakes)
– I got donut pans at Michael’s Craft Store  (use 50% off coupon, 🙂 )
Bake @ 375 for about 10 minutes (?).
(should make about 15 donuts)

1/4 cup sugar
1 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1/8 t salt

Dredge warm donuts in the spiced sugar to coat.

You can also coat donuts other ways:
-cover with chocolate
-shake in bag with powdered sugar
-make a glaze to drizzle

Be creative!  🙂   Enjoy!!!
