Baked Apple Cider Donuts

Last fall was the first time I've attempted to make donuts at home. They were actually pretty simple and very popular in my house. Since fall is just around the corner I decided to make a batch for this weekend. They were just as good, if not better, than the first time I made them. Delicious!

Baked Apple Cider Donuts
Makes 10-12 donuts

1/2 cup apple cider
1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup Buttermilk

For The Cider Topping
3 tbsp apple cider
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In another medium mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Add in the egg and continue beating. Stir flour into wet ingredients and add in your buttermilk Stir until well combined then add in the apple cider. Mix until just combined.

Fill the donut pan 1/2 of the way full and put into the oven for 8-10 or until the donuts are golden brown. Remove from oven and put on a wire rack.

Combine the cinnamon and sugar on a plate. Using a pastry brush, brush the top of sides of a donut with apple cider then dip into the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining donuts. Enjoy!
