I just love anything Snickerdoodle, and Snickerdoodle Donuts are no exception. These breathtaking donuts are filled with cinnamon and cinnamon chips. Then they’re rolled in cinnamon-sugar. So yes, there’s cinnamon, cinnamon and more cinnamon! Snickerdoodle Donuts will wow all your family and friends like they did our neighbors when we passed them out to them.
I thought about making these luscious donuts ever since I made the Apple Cinnamon Donuts for Mother’s Day. I love donuts anyway, so why not one that tastes like Snickerdoodles? This one is rich, decadent and absolutely heavenly. All the cinnamon-sugar that I coated on top made these outrageous donuts over-the-top!

We gave a bunch of them out to our neighbors and they all came back telling us how much they loved these marvelous breakfast treats.

Snickerdoodle Donuts are huge on cinnamon flavor! And yet, no one thought there was too much cinnamon!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the donuts.
Place UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour into a large mixing bowl. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add granulated sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Stir ingredients well to combine; set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, melt butter in microwave.
Add applesauce and buttermilk.
Add vanilla extract and cinnamon chips.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.
Stir ingredients just until moistened.
Spoon mixture into a gallon-size glad lock bag (without the “stand and fill” bottom.)
Seal top. Cut off a corner on the bottom.
Spray 22 donut tins with cooking spray. Pipe donut mixture into individual tins.
Bake at 400 degrees for 9 to 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
I used these ingredients for the coating.
Melt butter in a microwaveable bowl; set aside.
Place granulated sugar and cinnamon in another bowl.
Stir with a fork until very well combined.
Remove a donut from the donut pan very gently lifting with a regular table knife.
Dip the donut in butter.
Here, I’ve dipped one side of the donut in melted butter.
Dredge the melted butter side in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
This is the first coat of cinnamon-sugar on one side off the donut.
Now dip the other side in melted butter.
Here the other side is dipped in melted butter.
Now dip the buttered side in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over top of donuts again, dredging and sprinkling each side a total of about four times until you have a really nice coating of cinnamon-sugar on each donut.
Place the coated donuts on a wire rack.
Every bite is mouthwatering. No kidding!
All of our neighbors raved over these scrumptious donuts.
