They’re the sweet special bites that my family doesn’t dare indulge in on a regular basis, but we love to enjoy together as once-in-a-while weekend breakfast treats!. Making these cute little cinnamon syrup glazed doughnuts are addictive and they are the bomb. Add soften butter into your mixing bowl, next comes the brown sugar and white go ahead and just toss that right on in there and then go ahead and cream that together in a stand mixer. Next, you’re going to add in slightly beaten eggs and dump them in there and mix everything well, combine until it all creamy.

Next, for our extract, add in a little a little of the vanilla and just add a drop almond extract then mix up. We are then going to move to our dry ingredients have your all purpose flour and some salt and a bit of baking powder and then we are going to add in a little of baking soda and last add some cinnamon, lots of cinnamon. Toss it in and whisk it around and get everything combined. After combing the dry ingredients well, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixer, beat it at medium speed and add buttermilk until a perfect dough is formed. Roll the dough to a round shape and fry in a preheated oil at 370 degrees Farenheight.

Carefully fry all the doughnuts and once done roll the doughnuts in cinnamon sugar before drizzling some brown syrup on top of it and serve them. There are three different toppings/glazes you can make to go with the basic cinnamon sugar donuts recipe.
