Cinnamon Donuts

Cinnamon Donuts

Halloween decided to dress up as a Winter.  So I decided to make these cinnamon donuts to keep us warm!


Cinnamon Donuts:

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted not hot

1 large egg

1/3 cup heavy cream

Enough vegetable oil for frying

 Cinnamon Sugar:

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix the cinnamon and the sugar in a shallow bowl, set aside. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, set aside.

Mix and Roll

In a large bowl, whisk sugar and butter together, add the egg and heavy cream until smooth. Gently fold in the dry ingredients with a spatula to form soft dough. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 3 hours.

In a large heavy skillet add an inch of oil, using a candy thermometer heat oil to 325 degrees. While oil is heating, take a teaspoon and measure one spoonful of dough, making a round dough hole ball.  Prepare all the donuts holes prior to frying.

Fry & Serve

In small batches, drop donuts holes into the hot oil, fry until golden brown on one side for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and fry the remaining side for 1 to 2 minutes.

Place the donut holes on a brown paper bag or several layers of paper towels, to allow excess oil to drain. Roll the donut holes within the cinnamon sugar mixture, covering completely. Serve immediately, they taste the best warm!
