Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Balls

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Balls

This recipe is a really great way to enjoy the flavour and texture of a doughnut with out all the time consuming cooking.  Using a cake pop maker you will have about 30 of these balls made in around 20 minutes.

These went down a treat with all the family, even hubby who isn’t much of a cake person was digging in.


100gm Butter, softened
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Egg
2 Cups Plain Flour
1 Tsp Bicarbonate Soda
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Cup Milk


1 Cup Raw Sugar
2 Tsp Cinnamon, ground
100gm Butter, melted


  1. Turn the cake pop maker on to heat.  If you don’t have a cake pop maker spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place the softened butter, sugar and egg into a large mixing bowl and mix together well with a spoon.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well to form a smooth batter.
  4. Place spoonfuls of the mix into the cake pop maker and close the lid.  Allow to cook for 5 minutes or until they bounce back with touched.  Repeat with the remaining batter.  If using the mini muffin tray bake in a preheated 180 degree celcius oven for 10-15 minutes or until they bounce back when touched.
  5. Combine the sugar and sugar on flat tray and have the melted butter in a bowl.  Dip the ball into the butter melted quickly (you don’t want it to soak in) then roll in the cinnamon sugar and place onto a plate.  Repeat for the remaining balls.

Makes approx 30

    Ooh thank you! This recipe will allow me my maiden use of a sitting-in-its-box, new and unloved Cake pop machine

    Yummo! Thank you so much, Miss 6 and I just had these for afternoon tea. She is a Coeliac, so being able to make gluten free donuts was a great treat for her. Will certainly be making these again!

    In eager to try this recipe!
    Can I exchange the plain flour, baking powder and bicarbonate soda with self raising flour?

      Hi, you can substitute the plain flour and baking powder for self raising but you will still need the bicarbonate soda.

      I haven’t tried it as I don’t own one, but it is the same concept so I could see it working.
