Baked Cinnamon Mini Doughnuts

IMG_0600-title
For Christmas, my mom gave us several really cool kitchen gadgets that I was so excited to use right away. The only problem was that the day before we opened the gifts, our house flooded and we didn’t actually have a kitchen anymore. That meant that all of our fun new gadgets were stored away for the next three months, which was a bummer.

So, now that we’re back in our house and actually settled in, I’m finally getting to try everything out! One of the first things I wanted to try was a mini doughnut pan, so I made these tasty little cinnamon doughnuts. I dipped a couple of them in a cinnamon sugar mixture, but I actually liked them a lot better without it, so I’d recommend leaving them plain.
