Cinnamon-Sugar Coating

While doughnuts are baking, melt the butter for the topping and set aside. Add the sugar and cinnamon to a lunch-size paper bag.

While the doughnuts are still warm, dip first in the melted butter and then place 4 or 5 at a time in the paper bag with cinnamon-sugar. Shake the doughnuts, and place on a metal rack to cool… if you can wait that long!

Additionally, I like to make a few coated in powdered sugar.

Powdered Sugar Coating

Place 1/2 cup of confectioners’ sugar in a paper lunch-size bag. While the doughnuts are still warm, place 4-5 in the bag, close the top, and shake.

Notes

Often when I make these doughnut holes I skip the butter coating step on the Cinnamon-Sugar coating. It’s only a preference because the cinnamon sugar does stick better by first dipping them into the melted butter.
