Baked Cinnamon Donut Holes

Cinnamon donut holes are king in our house. I love cinnamon donut holes because they are bite-sized I feel like I can either have more than I would if they were full-sized donuts, or I can opt to have less and feel satisfied that I had a donut!

his baked cinnamon donut hole recipe is the easiest donut recipe you can ask for. And, they’re baked, not fried, so it’s better for you! Another cinnamon-sugar recipe we love that also uses canned dough is our churros recipe.

One recipe makes an entire pie pan of baked donut holes. I use cinnamon and sugar to coat mine and they’re perfect.

This plate of donut holes will be gone in no time!

I’m a sucker for breakfast treats. Well, treats of any kind. And, this recipe is just too easy not to try. Perfect for a busy working mom.


  • 1 can refrigerator biscuits any amount of biscuits is fine.
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 4 Tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven 350

  3. Melt butter (microwave in 30 second increments or melt on stovetop), put in small bowl
  4. Mix together sugar and cinnamon, put in small bowl
  5. Open package of biscuits and separate individual biscuits
  6. With knife, cut each biscuit into 4 pieces
  7. Take each small piece and roll into a ball
  8. Take each ball and dip in melted butter, covering ball
  9. Next, roll butter-covered ball into sugar mixture
  10. Place cinnamon-sugar covered ball into baking dish
  11. Repeat until all biscuit pieces are covered and in baking dish
  12. Donuts can be touching when in the pan. Just keep moving them around until they all fit.
  13. Bake 18-20 minutes.
  14. Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving. These pull apart easily and are quickly devoured!


  1. Depending on the biscuits you buy, you might prefer to follow the baking instructions on the package. i.e. 375 for 11-15 minutes. Just make sure the biscuits are cooked through. Pop them back in for a few minutes if they aren't done enough.
