Yield:
9 doughnuts

Ingredients

  • nonstick cooking spray

Batter:

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • cup butter, softened

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ cup milk

Topping:

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 9 cavities of a 12-cavity doughnut pan with cooking spray.

  2. Combine sugar, butter, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl; beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Add egg and mix until incorporated.

  3. Combine flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in batches, alternating with milk, beating batter briefly after each addition. Pour batter into a large resealable plastic bag. Snip off one corner of the bag and pipe batter into the 9 prepared cavities of the doughnut pan, filling each halfway.

  4. Bake doughnuts in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 7 to 9 minutes.

  5. While the doughnuts are baking, place melted butter for topping in a shallow bowl. Mix together 2/3 cup sugar and cinnamon in another shallow bowl. Roll warm doughnuts in melted butter and then in cinnamon sugar to coat.

Cook's Note:

If you don't have nutmeg, you could use vanilla.
