Baked Apple Cider Donuts

I love Apple Season because it's pretty much the only time that I make donuts. This is the second year that I've made my own apple cider using the fresh apples we picked to use in the donuts and it really does make a difference! They are a family favorite and fairly easy to make!

Baked Apple Cider Donuts

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!
