Cinnamon Toast Crunch Donut

What is one cereal that you were in love with as a kid that you still eat faithfully now? Mine is Cinnamon Toast Crunch except now I eat the organic version because it is actually vegan. Nevertheless, I randomly got the idea of making this beauty of a donut and I know baby Char would be drooling over this for sure. Shoot, current adult Char is drooling over this.

  9. While donuts are in the oven, make the cinnamon glaze.

  10. Mix all ingredients to make glaze in a bowl and sit aside.

  11. Remove donuts from oven and let cool for 3-4 mins before removing from pan.
