If your family is a fan of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, then they'll love these delicious baked donuts!

These donuts are soft, super flavorful and a family favorite! The combo of the maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla in these donuts is absolute perfection!

You can make these donuts for breakfast any day of the week. They can also be made ahead of time, for a quick grab and go breakfast during the week.

There's cereal in the donut batter and the maple glaze on top is so good, I was tempted to eat it by the spoonful.

This is such a great recipe for the kiddos to help out with. They can measure, stir, pipe the batter into the donut baking pan, help glaze and top with the Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Recipe tips:


  • Before placing your donuts in the oven, gently pound your donut pan down on the counter. This will help the batter settle down evenly and get out air bubbles. 
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You can freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months. 
  • Immediately after glazing donuts, sprinkle with crushed cereal. If you allow the glaze to harden, the cereal will not stick. 
  • When preparing your glaze, add your milk one tablespoon at a time until you achieve your desired consistency. For me, it was about 3 tablespoons.

Glazed Cinnamon Toast Crunch Donuts

Ingredients

  • donuts:
  • 1 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, crushed
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 1 ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ stick butter, melted (4 tablespoons)
  • glaze:
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease your donut pan and set aside.
  2. Place 1 cup of the crushed cinnamon toast crunch and the buttermilk in a large mixing bowl. Give a slight stir and set aside.
  3. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl and mix.
  4. Add the egg, oil, maple syrup, vanilla, sour cream, brown sugar and melted butter to the bowl. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the buttermilk mixture, a bit at a time, and stir until thoroughly combined.
  6. Add batter to a piping bag. Fill each cavity in the donut pan about ¾ of the way full.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until the tops of the donuts are bouncy.
  8. Do not remove the donuts from the pan. Set aside to cool for 15-20 minutes.
  9. While the donuts are cooling, mix together all the ingredients for the glaze, except the cereal, and stir until thoroughly combined.
  10. Gently remove the donuts from the pan and dip the tops of the donuts in the prepared glaze, before placing them glaze side up on a piece of parchment paper.
  11. Crush some of the remaining cinnamon toast crunch, while leaving some of the pieces still whole. Place a couple whole pieces of cereal on each donut, in a diagonal manner, in the corner of the donut before sprinkle in the same direction with the crushed cereal.

Notes

Before placing your donuts in the oven, gently pound your donut pan down on the counter. This will help the batter settle down evenly and get out air bubbles. 


Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You can freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
