Bake Along#47 - Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

When I saw this Bake-Along, I tell myself, I am so so definetely gonna join.. Why? Simply because my gal adores donuts. But it's those colouful donuts, full of sweets. Alamak. So I am thinking I could make a small amount of cinnamon sugar and a small amount of her favorites with this recipe and not having to worry about how to finish 1 recipe!!

I bake them in both mini donut pans and mini muffins pans. I always wonder, hw come my donuts can never brown nicely, always a pale yellow.. Why why why. Luckily I am coating them.. Sad =(
I used melted chocolate for the donut, added some sprinkles for my lil ones. Cinnamon sugar are for the 'older' ones.

I tried the donuts plain, just nice and very fragrant though I didn't add any vanilla essence. Feels like a mixture of bread and cake texture. Yummy.. Those with cinnamon sugar (I jus add a tsp of cinnamon powder to 2Tbsp sugar) is super fragrance. But I only made 4 cos it is so sinful to keep popping into my mouth. The balance, yes, topped with melted white choc and sprinkles for my gal & neighbor's kids... =)

I am submitting this post to Bake-Along event hosted by JoyceLena and Zoe.

Hi Priscilla,

You made so much effort decorating your donuts. Comparing with yours, mine are so plain :D

Nice to know that you are going to bake-along with us for the fruit buckle theme... I didn't know much about fruit buckle until Joyce suggested this theme.
