Whipped these simple yet delicious donuts for breakfast the other day! They came out so cute and pretty. I read several recipes for Baked Cinnamon Donuts on the internet and adapted bits from several to create my own. This one is a real simple recipe bursting with cinnamon goodness. On top of that it is eggless 🙂

I have heard several times that baked donuts never  taste like the fried version. It is partly true because all the recipes for baked donuts are basically adapted from traditional cake recipes. But then why won’t anyone love a simple, quick, eggless, non-fried, no-yeast recipe :D. So many advantages 🙂

These Baked Cinnamon Donuts practically don’t require any effort except for buying the donut pan :P.

Once the batter is popped in the oven, it takes barely 15 minutes to have them baked.Then give them a generous dunk in melted butter and cinnamon sugar mixture.

I glazed few of them with melted chocolate too. But the donuts taste divine without the chocolate glaze as well.

Don’t scale down the amount of cinnamon  in this recipe. Trust me when I say that, because cinnamon is the hero of this simplistic recipe. These Baked Cinnamon Donuts are small spiced flavour bombs :). So please don’t shy away and bake them for your breakfast tomorrow!
