Ingredients

For the donuts:

  • 1 cup (127 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 7 ounces (200 grams) plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons real maple syrup

For the cinnamon sugar:

  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a 6-cavity donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In medium bowl stir together the egg, yogurt, vinegar, oil, and maple syrup.
  3. Make a hole in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into the hole. Gently fold everything together until combined. The batter will be thick.
  4. Scoop batter into a piping bag or ziploc bag, snip a bottom corner with scissors, and squeeze out the batter evenly into a donut pan.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for a few moments and then flip over onto a cooling rack while still warm.
  6. In a small shallow bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  7. Use a pastry brush the melted butter over the donuts then dip each donut in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat. Serve soon after coating with cinnamon sugar mixture for best texture.
