Maple Cinnamon Donuts (adapted from here)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and grease your donut pan (I have this one and really like it, and this recipe perfectly makes one six donut batch; you could also make these as muffins, or mini muffins if you don't have a donut pan)
Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl, set aside. In a separate bowl whisk together the west ingredients until smooth. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredient mixture, stir until well combined. Let batter rest for about 5 minutes before filling the pan.
After resting, pour donut batter into the prepared pan. Bake donuts for 10 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through to ensure even baking. Allow donuts to cool for a couple of minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack.
For the sugar coating, mix together remaining sugar and cinnamon and pour onto a plate. Brush a donuts lightly with the melted butter and then dip it into the cinnamon sugar, turning it over and rolling it to get a good coating of sugar.
