I love cinnamon! I recently got a donut pan, and I made these vanilla donuts from Easy As Apple Pie as my first foray into baked donut making. I highly recommend that recipe for a light, airy baked donut that’s also super simple to make. I loved the airiness of the vanilla donuts. This time around, I wanted something with more density and maybe a little sour cream. I ended up using Greek yogurt because my Greek yogurt expires before my sour cream, and I wanted to save the sour cream for potential chili or tacos this week!
