For the Topping
¼cup granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Grease the donut pan well with butter.
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
In a separate smaller mixing bowl, mix together the egg, butter, milk, and vanilla together.
Gently fold the wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined.
Divide the batter evenly between 6 donut molds. It helps to use a mini cookie scoop to evenly distribute the batter between the donut molds.
Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until the donuts are set and a toothpick inserted into the center of the donut comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then remove donuts from the pan and cool for an additional 10-15 minutes on a cooling rack.
Place the butter into a bowl and melt. In a separate bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.
Dip the cooled donuts into the melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar., coating on both sides. Dust off excess sugar mixture and serve.
Storage: Once donuts have cooled, store in a sealed container at room temperature for 2 days or in the refrigerator for 4 days. These donuts can also be frozen for up 3 months after being baked and cooled. To make Dairy-Free Cinnamon Donuts, use non-dairy milk in place of milk and vegan butter in place of regular butter.
