Donuts never looked so good!


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup yogurt at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare donut pans.
  2. Whisk together your dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl you'll add your eggs, brown sugar, milk, yogurt, butter, and vanilla.
  4. Blend your wet ingredients until combined.
  5. Mix together your dry and wet ingredients on a low speed until donut batter is combined and smooth.
  6. Pipe your donut batter into your donut pans and bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until your donuts lightly springs back.
  7. Once baked, allow to cool in pan while making your icing.


  1. start your icing by combining powdered sugar and heavy cream and mix on a high speed. You may need to add heavy cream or a tiny amount of powdered sugar until your icing reaches a honey-like consistency.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of your icing into a separate bowl.
  3. Sprinkle in 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and mix to combine.
  4. With both icings in your piping bags, drizzle both onto cinnamon roll donuts before you serve, and enjoy!


  • If icing is too thick, add more heavy cream by a tablespoon. If icing is too thin, add more powdered sugar by the teaspoon.
  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Be sure to allow your dairy ingredients to reach room temperature. Room temperature ingredients not only combine more effortlessly (no over-mixing needed) but they also trap air so much better. This trap air will expand and produce a fluffy texture during your baking process.
  • Prepared Pan: There will always be the "next best way to prepare your pan" article. Simply put however, the most effective way i find in my kitchen is a light rub of shortening around the sides, parchment paper on the bottom of the pan (for majority of baking pans), & a very light dusting of flour (cocoa powder for chocolate baked goods) all throughout.
