Apple Cider Donuts

It’s that time of year, time to pick some apples! I love to bake, and found a great recipe in the New York times by Erin Jean McDowell for baked apple cider donuts. Sometimes I find it difficult to get hold of a recipe from them, as they constantly want me to subscribe, lol. However, this time I was able to get this recipe with no problem. Hope you enjoy it. Here it is:

What you’ll need:

  • 1 ¾ cup/225 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup/225 grams unsalted butter (2 sticks), at room temperature
  • ¾ cup/165 grams light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup/150 grams granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup/120 milliliters apple cider

    Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, 1 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg; Set aside.

I also added in some Pea Protein -shhh!

In another bowl, mix together 10 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup white sugar and all of the brown sugar. Mix on medium speed for 3-4 minutes, until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time. Be sure to mix thoroughly between each addition.

Add in your vanilla extract.

Add the flour mixture and small increments, being sure to combine thoroughly without over mixing.

While the mixer is running, pour the apple cider into the batter in a slow stream. 

Brush your donut pan lightly with a neutral oil.

Use the easy accent decorator to fill the donut wells.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until donut springs back when touched and cake tester comes out clean when inserted.

Cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool 10 minutes more.

Mix the remainder of granulated sugar with the remaining cinnamon, whisk well.

Melt the rest of the butter in one of the coating trays. Place cinnamon sugar in another coating tray. Dip each donut first into the melted butter, then into the cinnamon sugar.

All done! Please let me know if you try this recipe, and what, if anything, you would add or change.

If you have any left, you can freeze them for a couple of months, or store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
