Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease donut pan. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together the butter, vegetable oil, vanilla and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs, beating to combine. In a separate bowl, sift or whisk the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and flour. Add the dry mixture alternately with the milk, making sure everything is thoroughly combined. The batter will be fairly thick. Pipe the batter into your donut pan, filling the wells to about ¼ shy of the rim.
Bake donuts for 13 minutes. Remove them from the oven, and wait 3 to 4 minutes before turning them out of the pans onto a rack. For cinnamon donuts, shake warm donuts in a plastic bag with about 1/4 to 1/3 cup cinnamon-sugar.
*For chocolate chip donuts, add 3/4 cup chocolate chips, mini chips preferred. If you make chocolate chip donuts, fill each well of the pan to the rim with batter.
