30 Minute Breakfast: Coffee Cake Donuts

I’ve been obsessing over the thought of making donuts lately and I’m really getting into the fall mood so I definitely had to make some coffee cake donuts. These cakey and sweet donuts have a vanilla drizzle and a crunchy cinnamon crumble. I bought these donut pans and they worked perfectly for the 6 donuts I made with this recipe. They were also super fast and easy, check out the recipe below!

Cinnamon Topping:

  • 3 Tbsp stick cold unsalted butter, cut into tiny pieces (or cubes)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 and 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

The Donuts:

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature

The Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 Tbsp whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

2. Make the cinnamon topping:

In a small bowl combine the sugar, the flour, and cinnamon. Add in the TINY butter cubes and quickly work them into the mixture it looks like a crumb consistency; chill the topping in the freezer while making the donut batter.

3. Make the donut batter:

In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together the wet ingredients. Gently fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture.

Spray the 6 piece donut mold with nonstick cooking spray. Pipe the batter into the prepared doughnut pan. Spoon cinnamon topping evenly among donut tops, then bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the doughnuts spring back when lightly pressed. Allow doughnuts to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before gently lifting them out and transferring to a wire wrack to cool for a few more minutes. If the holes are covered, pop them out with the end of the spoon.

4. Make the glaze:

In a small bowl whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla. Drizzle with a spoon over the donuts and serve right away!
