Old Fashioned Baked Donuts


  • Donut Pan


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray two 6-cavity doughnut pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla extract.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and gently stir together until just combined.
  • Divide the batter into the prepared donut pans, filling almost full.
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes or until the tops spring back when lightly pressed.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon-sugar.
  • As soon as the donuts are cooled enough to handle (but still warm), remove from pan and dip in cinnamon-sugar. Set on a wire rack to cool.
