Celebrate National Donut Day with a recipe straight from Carlo's Bakery! Buddy Valastro passes the torch to his youngest son, Carlo, to show us how to make some delicious "Hoboken-style" cinnamon-sugar donuts (with a little help from his mom and older brother Marco)!

Here's what to do if you'd like to make these yourself:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp melted butter (unsalted)
  • 1 1/4 cups milk with a dash of vanilla extract

Add flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon to a large mixing bowl. Add egg, melted butter and milk. Mix to combine ingredients.

Add the batter to muffin or donut pans.

Bake at 350 for 14 minutes, or until golden-brown.

Let them cool for about 5 minutes in the pan while you mix a combination of cinnamon and sugar. Once the donuts have cooled, dip the donuts in the cinnamon-sugar mix, and enjoy!!
