cinnamon "roll" donut

for my birthday i got a donut pan and could not wait to use it... i decided my first attempt would be a cinnamon donut.. i love cinnamon in the morning and even though i don't drink coffee, i personally think these dipped in a warm cup a' joe would be delicious.. i might have to actually have a cup of coffee next time i make these..
this little guy is pretty darn cool.. they popped right out. no muss.. no fuss..
this was a trial run to see out easy it was and it passed with flying colors.. very easy..
