Tender, moist Coffee Cake Donuts with a chunky cinnamon streusel and sweet cinnamon glaze. Baked, not fried, and perfect for a delicious Saturday morning breakfast!


For the donut:

  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

For the streusel:

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Spray donut pan with non stick baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, begin making the donut batter. Combine the sugar with butter and beat until blended. Add in the egg. Mix in the milk, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Beat until combined (about 1-2 minutes).
  3. Once it's all combined, spoon it into a large ziploc bag and snip off the corner. Then squeeze into each donut cavity, evenly distributing the batter between donuts.
  4. For the streusel, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter with a fork. Spoon over batter.
  5. Bake for 10-13 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool in pan about 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely on wire rack.
  6. For the glaze, whisk together the sugar, milk, and cinnamon until smooth. Drizzle over cooled donuts and allow to set, about 5 minutes. ENJOY!


  • Storing: These donuts are best enjoyed fresh, within a day of baking. Store leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container.
  • Grease your pan. Don't forget to generously coat your donut pan with baking spray! You don't want your donuts to become casualties of an ungreased pan. Or use our cake release.
  • Perfect glaze. Add the milk a little at a time until your cinnamon glaze reaches the consistency you prefer. As written, this recipe makes a glaze that's easy to pour but thick enough to set up well on the donuts.
