Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

INGREDIENTS

Doughnuts
2 cups cake flour (see note below)
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk, at room temperature
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla extract

Topping
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and spray a standard doughnut pan with nonstick spray. Whisk together cake flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Combine buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla in a medium bowl; add to flour mixture and fold in just until incorporated.
  2. Spoon batter into a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip and fill each doughnut cup 3/4 full. Bake about 8 minutes, until the tops spring back when touched. Turn doughnuts out on a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter, allowing pan to cool completely and spraying with nonstick spray in between batches.
  3. Set rack with cooled doughnuts over a piece of waxed paper. Heat butter in a microwave-safe bowl until melted. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Dip doughnut tops lightly in melted butter, and dunk in cinnamon sugar; repeat with other side. If you have extra cinnamon sugar, dunk tops again. Doughnuts taste best the first day – store leftover doughnuts at room temperature or wrap well and freeze up to 2 months.

NOTES
To make your own cake flour: place 2 tablespoons cornstarch in an empty 1-cup measure, then top up with flour. Sift the mixture several times to evenly distribute the cornstarch.
