Summer is officially here! And in our house, that means lazy mornings, lazy afternoons, and lazy evenings.
Well, at least for the teenagers! For me? Not having to drive people to and from places makes for a peaceful morning. Which means, I have more time for baking these delicious breakfast donuts!
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Cinnamon Coffee Cake. Or any coffee cake for that matter (just check out my archives). There’s something so wonderful about a hot cup of coffee with a side of cinnamon coffee cake.
But, my kids would much rather enjoy a donut (or two)! So in a compromise, I created these delicious Cinnamon Coffee Cake Donuts! You’ll love the baked donut with the streusel topping and sweet glaze on top!
How to make Cinnamon Coffee Cake Donuts:
- First, using baking spray, grease your donut pan. I love this one from Norpro!
- Next, make the donut batter. Once it’s all combined, I spoon it into a large ziploc bag and snip off the corner. Then squeeze into each donut cavity, evenly distributing the batter between donuts.
- Make the streusel in a small bowl, and using a fork, combine the melted butter with dry ingredients until crumbly. Pat evenly over the donut batter.
- Bake doughnuts in a 350 degree oven for 10-13 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to cool in pan 5 minutes, then flip out onto a wire rack to cool completely. I use a butter knife to gently flip them out of pan without dropping streusel everywhere.
- For the glaze, whisk the sugar, milk and cinnamon and drizzle over cooled donuts. Allow to set (about 5 minutes) and enjoy!
