How To Make Cinnamon Roll Donuts

These cinnamon roll donuts are baked instead of fried. They are soft and tender on the inside with just the right amount of crispiness on the outside.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 8 minutes
Total: 18 minutes



  • 2cupsflour,sifted and spooned into the cup
  • 2tspbaking powder
  • ½tspbaking soda
  • 1tspsalt
  • 1tspground cinnamon
  • ½tspground nutmeg
  • 2large eggs
  • cuplight brown sugar,packed
  • ½cupmilk
  • ½cupyogurt
  • 4tbspunsalted butter,melted
  • 1tbspvanilla extract
  • 2cupspowdered sugar
  • 2tspvanilla
  • tbspmilk,divided
  • ½tspcinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Spray baking spray on a mini donut pan.

  3. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl.

  4. Add the egg, brown sugar, milk, yogurt, melted butter and vanilla into a second bowl and whisk until combined.

  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until just combined.

  6. Add to a large ziploc bag and cut a tiny bit off the bottom corner.

  7. Pipe into the donut wells, ½ to ⅔ full.

  8. Bake for 8 minutes, or until it just barely springs back when touched.

  9. Let cool on a tray and make the next batch.

  10. Once they are all cooled, add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of milk to a small bowl. Mix well.

  11. Separate about 2 tablespoons of the icing and add the cinnamon before adding to a small ziploc bag. This cinnamon icing should be a bit thinner, so add in a tiny bit of water/milk if needed.

  12. Dip the donut tops into the glaze and put on tray.

  13. When all dipped, add the cinnamon icing over the donuts to make the cinnamon roll effect.
