Ingredients:  
1 cups cake flour, sifted
cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
tsp. salt
cup buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp. butter, melted
6 tbs. butter, melted (for dipping)
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar (for dipping)

Directions:
Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Add buttermilk, egg and butter and stir until just combined. Spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray, and fill each donut cup approximately one-half full.
Bake 46 minutes at 350 degrees or until the top of the donuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan for 45 minutes before removing. Finish the donuts by giving them a quick dip in the melted butter, then cinnamon sugar. Let cool/firm up for about 15-30 minutes, if you can wait that long.

The most important thing to know is NOT to overfill the mini donut tins! Each little circle should be halfway filled or less. I do this by putting all my batter in a plastic bag and the cutting the tip off so I can neatly squeeze just the amount that I want into each mini donut spot.

Also, compared to other recipes Ive tried, these mini donuts are very cakey (hence the cake flour). I was a little worried that they were too light for me. But they bulk up a bit when you add the butter and sugar to the outside, obvs. Overall, very tasty!

Personal Notes:
These donuts are a big hit - Beau, Sydney & Dean request these donuts all the time. We have boxed them up and given to special friends & family for Valentine's Day, and also we walked around Wildwood Center and gave them to each business in the center when Beau opened his new office. Also, we made them for Beau's class he teaches at Sierra College. I made a batch of Gluten-Free donuts for them as well. To make the gluten-free donuts, every ingredient was the same as listed above except for the flour; I used Bob's Red Mill Baking Flour 1 to 1 Gluten Free. They were great once dipped in butter and sugar ;) Also, the cook time is always longer than what is suggested in the recipe, but err on the side of caution not to overcook, I usually add a couple minutes here and there after the suggested bake time and then check.
