Cinnamon Chip Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Well, that's a mouthful! These were some of the best donuts I have ever eaten. I don't know about you lovely readers, but I love baked donuts (otherwise known as cake donuts) more than fried donuts. They weren't as greasy and sugary, and I was able to eat more! I got this beautiful recipe off of BakeYourDay, and I'm so very glad I made them.

** Here's a hint: You can find a store near you that sells these cinnamon chips by visiting this website:
Hershey's Product Locator - The category is Baking Products, and the item is Hershey's Cinnamon Chips 10 oz. In Oklahoma, you can find these at Homeland Stores.

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/3 cup grapeseed oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup cinnamon chips** (See note above)
4 Tbs. butter, melted
3 Tbs. granulated sugar
2 Tbs. brown sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Liberally spray a 6-cavity donut pan (or muffin pan) with non-stick spray and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together. Set aside.

3. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, sugar, egg, milk and vanilla together until blended. Gently pour into the dry ingredients mixing well just until combined. Fold in the cinnamon chips, stirring just until they are fully incorporated.

4. Divide the mixture evenly among the cavities in the donut (or muffin) pan. Bake in the oven for 10-11 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of a donut comes out clean.

5. While the donuts cool, melt the butter in one bowl. In another bowl, combine the sugars and cinnamon and mix well. When the donuts have cooled in the pan for about 10 minutes, gently remove one, dip one side in the melted butter and then into the cinnamon/sugars mixture and place on a wire rack. Repeat with the others and serve warm.
