Happy National Donut Day!

Is it donut or doughnut?  I never know which one.  Donut always gets the squiggly "you've spelled this word wrong" line under it.  But doughnut is SO many more letters.  :)
Yummy!  Here is the recipe I used.  I slightly adapted this recipe.  I adapted it so that I wouldn’t have a dozen donuts lying around the house and to add vanilla.  I also used my food scale to make cutting it in half easier.  Warning: these are nothing like the classic deep fried donut deliciousness but they'll do in a pinch and save on a few calories I'm sure.

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
2 ounces all purpose flour
1.75 ounces sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
a few grates of fresh nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon plain yogurt
1 egg
1 ounce vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, and cinnamon.
2. Add yogurt, egg, oil, and vanilla.
3. Mix until blended then spoon into your donut pan.
4. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
5. Let cool in the pan and place onto a wire rack.
6. Melt a pat of butter and brush those little babies then dip them into cinnamon sugar. 
Here they are ready for the oven.  You’ll see that mine made 7 donuts. 
Fresh from the oven.  
Pre-cinnamon sugar.  I like to do messy stuff like that over the sink.  It saves clean up!
