Baked Snickerdoodle Donuts (Eggless) ~ Day 59

These soft, delicious, cinnamon-sugar coated Snickerdoodle donuts are so easy to make and are incredibly addictive.  This is way healthier than the fried donuts.  My fussy tween gave a thumps up after trying it and that's a good thing.  You can get the donut pan from amazon or at a local Home Goods, TJ Maxx or Ross for Less Stores.  I got mine from TJ Maxx for $7.99.  

 Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 12 donuts

Recipe adopted and modified from: Bromabakery

  • All-purpose flour - 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Light brown sugar - 1/3 cup
  • Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 3/4 tsp
  • Corn Starch - 2 tbsp plus 1 tbsp water mixed thoroughly (to replace 1 egg)
  • or 
  • Egg - 1
  • Plain yogurt - 1/3 cup
  • Vegetable oil - 1/4 cup
  • Whole milk - 1/4 cup (I used 2% milk)
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Donut pan
  • Ziplock bag

For the cinnamon sugar:
  • Granulated sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Ground cinnamon - 1/2 tbsp
  • Butter - 1/4 cup, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease the donut pan and set it aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a another mixing bowl, whisk together the corn starch mixture or egg (if using), yogurt, vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  The mixture will be thick.
  5. Spoon the batter into a large ziplock bag and cut a 1/2 inch hole in the corner.  Pipe the batter into the donut molds, filling 3/4 of the mold.  Or simply spoon the batter directly into the mold.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.  Allow it cool in the pan for 5 minutes before dusting with cinnamon sugar.
  7. To make the cinnamon sugar:
  8. Combine sugar and ground cinnamon in a bowl.  Using a small brush, brush each donut with the melted butter on both sides.  Dip each side into the sugar mixture.
  9. Enjoy!
