Step 6:

Place in the oven at 350 degrees F for only about 10-12 minutes. They are done when they spring back when touched gently, or a skewer inserted in the middle will come out clean.

Step 7:

If you want the cinnamon topping, just combine the ingredients into a bowl. For the glazing, add all ingredients into a bowl then mix using a whisk until you have a thick consistency. Remove the doughnuts from the oven and immediately drop some on the cinnamon mixture to coat them. For the glazing, get a spoonful and spoon over the donuts, place in a tray then let it drip.
