Are you more of a pumpkin person or an apple, cinnamon, maple fan? I feel as though pumpkin is the golden child of fall but I love all of the other fall flavors just as much! I can’t pick a favorite, I go back and forth so much! Right now, it’s probably anything with lots of cinnamon! What is your favorite fall flavor?!

Cinnamon Sugar Donut Tips:

My biggest tip for these cinnamon sugar donuts and all donut recipes is to use a silicone donut pan. They aren’t very expensive and make baking donuts 10x easier. Why? because you can just pop the donuts out of the mold and they don’t fall apart. I’ve linked the ones I use from Amazon here.

I would also let the donuts cool a little before adding the cinnamon sugar topping. You don’t have to but I think it makes the cinnamon sugar topping stick better and letting the donuts cool before removing them from the pan helps them hold together better.
