Snickerdoodle Donuts

Snickerdoodle Donuts

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Additional Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes

Don't let the mini size fool you, these little guys pack quick the snickerdoodle flavor!


  • 2 & 3/4 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 & 2/3 cups granulated white sugar
  • 5 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 & 1/4 cups milk at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon sugar blend


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a standard sized mixing bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In a larger mixing bowl, whip shortening on a high speed until fluffy.
  4. Add in white granulated sugar and mix into shortening on a lower speed until incorporated.
  5. One at a time, add eggs and mix in after each addition.
  6. Blend in vanilla extract.
  7. Add in dry mixture and mix on a low speed until just combined.
  8. Fill your donut wells about 2/3 of the way full.
  9. Bake donuts for 10 minutes or until your cake tester comes out clean.
  10. Once baked, pull from oven, sprinkle cinnamon-sugar onto each donut, and allow to cool.
  11. Decorate, frost, and garnish with your preferred taste and ENJOY!


  • 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.
