Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 6-cavity donut pan and set aside.

Melt the butter in a saucepan on medium-low heat. Add the cinnamon, brown sugar, milk, and cornstarch. Heat until it just bubbles. Take it off the heat and pour about 1/2 tsp of the mixture into the bottom of each donut cavity.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, milk, egg, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined.

Pipe or spoon the batter into the donut cavities about 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 7-8 minutes and turn out on a wire rack to cool.

Using a fork, whisk the milk into the powdered sugar until desired consistency. Using a piping bag or a plastic bag with the tip cut off, glaze the top of the donuts.
