Baked Maple Doughnuts with Cinnamon Sugar


We are huge breakfast fan’s in this house. We woke up wanting doughnuts and had these whipped up in less than 20 minutes. They were warm and fluffy with the perfect hint of sweetness. Pair with a cup of hot coffee or tea and you’ve got the perfect breakfast.
