Cinnamon Breakfast Donuts


I found the recipe for these donuts on Pinterest and I was intrigued from the get-go.

I had all the ingredients on hand so I decided to give it a whirl. I was pleased with how the dough came together and how easy it was to make. The flavor was really good too!

There was one thing that I did not like about these. Once they’re baked and cooled, they are a little dry and no super sweet as to be eaten by themselves as dessert. They are, however, great as breakfast donuts. They dip wonderfully into coffee and are great little treat in the morning.


So while these were originally supposed to be dessert, I have deemed them breakfast because they just make more sense that way.
