Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

When I saw this recipe on Shutterbean I knew I wanted to make them the next Saturday for breakfast.  I did have my donut pan while we lived in the apartment so I have been dying to use it since we moved into our house!  These donuts were the perfect sweet treat on a lazy Saturday morning! I slightly adapted as well.

1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 large egg (lightly beaten)
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
1 tsp vanilla extract

 4 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 350 and grease the donut pan.  In a medium size mixing bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt  In a small bowl mix together egg, buttermilk, unsalted butter and vanilla extract.  Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined.  Fill the donut pan 3/4 of the way full and bake for 15 to 17 minutes.  Let the donuts cool for 4-5 minutes then flip it over to remove them from the pan.  In a bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon.  Brush the donuts with melted butter on both sides and dip in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Repeat with each donut and serve.
