Cinnamon Sugar Coating Ingredients
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a standard sized donut pan and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine egg, LACTAID® 2% Reduced Fat Milk, vegetable oil, apple cider, and vanilla extract. Carefully pour the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing until just combined. Mixture will be slightly lumpy and thick.
- Spoon batter into a large plastic bag and cut a ½ inch hole in one corner, creating a makeshift piping bag. Pipe the dough into the donut molds, filling ¾ of the way to the top of the molds. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before coating with cinnamon sugar.
- To make the cinnamon sugar, combine both ingredients in a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl combine the melted butter and apple cider. Using a small brush, brush each donut with the melted butter and apple cider, then dip each side into the sugar mixture. Dip each donut in twice for an extra sugary coating.
