  4. Divide the batter evenly among 24 greased mini muffin cups, filling about half full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 9 minutes; a wooden pick inserted in the centers should come out clean. Transfer to wax paper.Cinnamon Donuts (5)

  6. Working with 1 donut at a time, dip in the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Return to the wax paper.Cinnamon Donuts (6)
