1. In a small bowl, mix together starter, flour and water.
2. Cover lightly and let sit for at least 8 hours. Mixture should be bubbly.
3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
4. To the bowl of starter, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, butter, eggs, milk and vanilla. Stir until well combined.
5. Grease 12 doughnut pan molds well. Fill each doughnut mold about three-quarters full.
6. Bake for 12 minutes, until doughnuts spring back when touched and bottom is golden. Remove from the oven and let sit briefly.
7. In a small bowl, add sugar and cinnamon, stirring to combine.
8. While doughnuts are still hot, add one doughnut to bowl and toss in sugar mixture until well coated. Place on waxed or parchment paper to cool. Repeat with remaining doughnuts.

If you would like to cool the doughnuts before adding the cinnamon/sugar, melt ¼ cup of butter and dip each doughnut in the warm butter before adding sugar mixture.
