Cinnamon Twisted Donuts Recipe

Delight in the simple pleasure of making these irresistible cinnamon twisted donuts. Perfect when served warm with a glass of milk, they’re a heavenly treat for any snack time.


  • 1.5 teaspoons of instant yeast
  • 1 cup of lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • For the Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:
    • 1/2 cup of sugar (for dusting)
    • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder (optional)
  • Oil for frying
  • Additional flour for dusting


  1. Prepare the Yeast Mixture: In a bowl, combine lukewarm water and brown sugar, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the instant yeast and let it sit until it bubbles, about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a separate large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Once the yeast mixture is ready, add it to the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until well incorporated.
  3. Knead the Dough: On a floured surface, knead the dough for 10-15 minutes until it’s elastic and smooth, though it may be slightly sticky. You can use your hands, a stand mixer, or a handheld mixer for this step.
  4. Let the Dough Rise: Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with cling wrap, and let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in size.
  5. Shape the Donuts: Once doubled, transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Divide it into 15 equal pieces, roll each into a log, and twist. Seal the ends and place on a clean plate or baking sheet.
  6. Fry the Donuts: Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pan. Fry the donuts without overcrowding the pan until golden brown.
  7. Coat with Cinnamon-Sugar: Drain the donuts briefly on paper towels, then roll them in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon powder until well coated.
  8. Serve and Enjoy: These donuts are best enjoyed fresh and warm. Serve immediately for a delightful treat.

Additional Tips:

  • Frying: Ensure the oil is very hot for frying to prevent the donuts from absorbing too much oil.
  • Serving: These donuts pair wonderfully with a glass of milk or your favorite warm beverage.

Enjoy crafting these delicious cinnamon twisted donuts, a treat that promises to bring a touch of sweetness to any moment.
