Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Mix dry and wet ingredients until well combined.
Grease a mini donut pan with oil or butter and fill each hole 3/4 full of batter.
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.
Donuts will be light color and springy to touch.
Allow them to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before turning them out.

Quickly dip each doughnut into the butter and then roll them around in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
