Cinnamon sugar cake donuts

February 22, 2016

When I first started this blog, Monday’s were always my donut baking days, or so it just worked out that way.. so I thought why not make some donuts this sunny Monday morning 🙂 I love anything cinnamon sugar, and you don’t need a lot to get that sweetness you crave, these cinnamon cake donuts are scrumptious, and only 3 smart points each.. Now that’s a good donut baking day in my books!!

Cinnamon sugar cake donuts
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
3SP blue, green & purple- 2pp each
  • ½ cup + 1Tbsp flour
  • 3 Tbsp white cake mix
  • ½ Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp liquid egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ⅓ cup skim milk
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnmaon
  • For topping
  • 1 tsp reduced calorie margarine, melted
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 6 hole donut pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl mix your flour, cake mix, brown sugar and baking powder. Add in your egg whites, vanilla and milk, mix well.
  3. Use half your batter and divide over your 6 hole donut pan. In a small zip lock bag mix your 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon, cut off tip of bag and swirl sugar mix over your 6 donuts. Top with remaining batter.
  4. Bake in oven for 14 minutes.
  5. Melt your margarine and using a pastry brush, brush onto your donuts. Place your 1 Tbsp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon mix on a flat plate and dip donuts in mix.
  6. *Please note, I only counted points for ½Tbsp sugar for topping as you will have left over, I only used ½ the mix, also if you don't keep cake mix in the house you can increase the flour, but the cake mix does add a nice sweetness, I always have a box in the pantry and if you seal it it will keep well for other baked up goodies.
  7. Makes 6 donuts at 3 smart points each on blue, green & purple (2pp) keep in sealed container. Will freeze well.
