Homemade Coffee Cake Donuts Recipe

There's nothing like warm coffee cake donuts fresh out of the oven in the morning. Our baked donut batter is made with a little sour cream to keep them moist and full of flavor. Then top the donuts with the brown sugar-cinnamon crumble and a warm sugar glaze (the best part of any coffee cake!) This weekend, surprise your family with this breakfast treat or bake a batch just because.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare donut pan with vegetable pan spray.
  2. For the topping: In medium bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and salt until thoroughly combined and mixture feels like wet sand. Set aside.
  3. For the donuts: In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, vegetable oil and vanilla. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stirring until just combined. Fill each donut cup approximately 2/3 full and sprinkle with topping.
  4. Bake 11-14 minutes or until the tops of the donuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan 4-5 minutes before removing.
  5. For the glaze: In small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla. Drizzle glaze over donuts. Donuts are best served fresh.
