Serves: 12
  • 2 cups flour, sifted, AP
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup evaporated milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon/sugar mix
  • cinnamon/sugar mix, to top
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt in a bowl and whisk together.
  3. In mixer bowl, add egg, vanilla, butter, milk, 2 tablespoons cinnamon/sugar and fully mix.
  4. Stir together wet and dry ingredients until just combined.
  5. Roll out dough on well-floured surface to about ¼-1/2" thickness large rectangle.
  6. Brush off excess flour.
  7. Heavily sprinkle entire dough rectangle with cinnamon/sugar blend. The more the merrier!
  8. Use pizza cutter to slice dough into strips, cutting horizontally from your left-right.
  9. Take each strand and twist it carefully.
  10. Wrap each strand into a lightly greased doughnut pan for baking. I prefer THIS fluted mini doughnut pan.
  11. Note that the dough will overlap as it circles a couple times. This is what you want.
  12. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes.
  13. Cool, but serve warm for best results.
  14. Top with caramel sauce and/or with coffee.
  15. Enjoy! - More on
