Ingredients:

nonstick cooking spray

Batter:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9 cavities of a 12-cavity doughnut pan with cooking spray.

Combine sugar, butter, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl; beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Add egg and mix until incorporated.

Combine flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in batches, alternating with milk, beating batter briefly after each addition. Pour batter into a large resealable plastic bag. Snip off one corner of the bag and pipe batter into the 9 prepared cavities of the doughnut pan, filling each halfway.

Bake doughnuts in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 7 to 9 minutes.

While the doughnuts are baking, place melted butter for topping in a shallow bowl. Mix together 2/3 cup sugar and cinnamon in another shallow bowl. Roll warm doughnuts in melted butter and then in cinnamon sugar to coat.
