Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts (+ Video)

Who wouldn’t love a baked variety of a classic sweet treat like cinnamon sugar donuts?  These baked donuts have great flavor and the cinnamon sugar coating provides the texture needed to feel like you are eating the fried variety.   These donuts were fun to make with my little kitchen helper as you can see in the video. (Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts Link)  All that is needed are two bowls and your trusty donut pan.  I pre-measured all of the ingredients and placed them in containers that are easy for my toddler to pour from.  The ziploc bag is more technical at this age, but he enjoyed being part of the process.
