3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

COATING

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray doughnut pans with nonstick spray and set aside.

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.


In another bowl, combine the egg substitute, buttermilk, vanilla, applesauce and butter. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add wet ingredients. Blend just enough to moisten everything well.

Place batter in prepared doughnut pans, filling two-thirds full. If using another type of pan (like individual bundt pans), divide batter evenly, not filling pan to two-thirds, but closer to one-third full.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly touched.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the teaspoon of cinnamon. Place each doughnut in the sugar mixture and turn to coat with sugar. Cool on a rack.
