Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes

Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes

So awhile ago I got a Babycakes cake pop maker for a really good price from Kohls, it was originally around $40 and I got it on sale for about $8 I think.  I haven’t ever tried it out so yesterday afternoon I decided to give it a whirl since I figured I could sit down while making them with my injured ankle and all.  I decided to give donut holes a go instead of cake pops and they came out beautiful and delicious as you can see, and oh so easy too!  The recipe comes from C’s Sweet Designs and was perfect!  I saw another idea on Pinterest for making cinnamon roll balls with cinnamon roll dough so I need to try that and, of course, cake pops.  I’ll keep you posted!

topping:

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup cinnamon

donut holes:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tablespoon lemon extract (I left this out, just wanted the vanilla flavor)

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1  Fill a bowl or paper sack with topping ingredients and combine.  (I used my Alison’s Pantry Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast Sugar.)

2  Cream together butter and sugar.

3  Add eggs and mix thoroughly.

4  Add vanilla, milk and lemon extract.

5  Slowly fold in flour and baking soda, do not overmix.

6  Pour batter into squeeze bottle or ziploc bag with corner cut off.  (I used my Pampered Chef mini scoop.)

7  Squeeze or scoop batter to fill bottom of well heated and greased cake pop machine.

8  Cook according to machine’s directions, about 4 minutes for mine.

9  While piping hot, dump into cinnamon sugar mixture and toss to coat.
