Cinnabon Donuts

I have to tell you that I am totally addicted to homemade donuts.  Tons of recipe ideas are always swirling around in my head.  When I made these, my kids went nuts.  Noah ate nearly 3/4 of them himself.  They are soooo good.  I will definitely be making these again and again.  You know how even the donuts from those famous places tend to get hard or stale the next day?  Not these.  They were still fresh the next morning and quickly gobbled up!  Not to mention super easy to make!

I keep giggling while I type up this post because my husband made the comment at dinner the other night that I add cinnamon to everything. Not true, but I do have to admit that I LOVE cinnamon in a lot of things.  An example would be these Cinnabon Donuts.  They are nothing short of A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

I also have to admit to my new obsession with International Delight Coffee Creamers.  I have been creating all kinds of yummy treats with them (coming to the blog soon).  They come in a wide variety of flavors which makes the possibilities nearly endless!

One of the things that makes this recipe so easy is that the base is a boxed cake mix.  I know there are those that are shaking their head at me, but I absolutely LOVE Pillsbury boxed mixes.  They are easy, always turn out perfectly and taste like homemade to me.  You can use any boxed mix you want, but I HIGHLY recommend the Pillsbury Moist Supreme mixes.  They never fail me!

Cinnabon Donuts
  • 1 box Pillsbury white cake mix
  • ¾ cup Cinnabon Coffee Creamer
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • Dash of Cinnamon
  • 2 cups powder sugar
  • 6-8 Tbsp Cinnabon Coffee Creamer
  • Dash of Cinnamon
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together all of the donut ingredients.
  3. Transfer your dough mix into a gallon sized freezer bag. Snip a hole in the corner of the bag.
  4. Pipe dough into your donut pan. Bake for 8 minutes or until the tops spring back when you touch them.
  5. Let the donuts cool in the pan before glazing.
  1. In a small bowl, stir together the glaze ingredients until sugar is completely dissolved. Use immediately to glaze donuts.
  2. Dip each donut in glaze and place on a wire rack to set.

Do you need a Donut maker or Donut pan?  You can pick them up from Amazon using the links below. I used the Babycakes Donut Maker and Cake Pop Makers for these.  They are AWESOME!  I am dying to try some of their other makers now!
