Apple Cider Donut Recipe

Friday, September 25, 2020

Hello! I feel like I have been waiting all summer for it to be fall, and I'm so excited it's finally here! One of my favorite fall things when we lived in Connecticut was the apple cider donuts (and apple cider!). Since moving back to the west, it's been so hard to find farms that have apple cider donuts. Especially ones that are close!

So, lo and behold, the best apple cider recipe in the world! They are sweet, but not too sweet. Fluffy, but dense. And dipped in butter and cinnamon sugar which is... honestly what makes them so good!

I used this recipe as a base, but made a lot of tweaks! If you try them, let me know what you think! We made like 12 and they were gone in a few days haha. 

The ingredients I used are the same as linked in the recipe above, with the except of the whole wheat flour. I just used 3 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees while you mix the dough.

Note: The apple cider boiling down to 1 cup has been variable for me depending on what oven I use. I've had to turn down the heat so I just had 1 cup after 12 minutes, and I've had to boil it for like 20 minutes to get just 1 cup. But, I think the most important thing is that you have 1 cup afterward!

Once you've mixed the dough, put it into a bag and pipe it into a donut tin. You'll want each donut to be about half full.

Bake for about 7-8 minutes and cool on a cooling rack. Brush them with melted butter (on the front AND back!) and dip into a cinnamon sugar mixture. (I just eyeball it.)

And that's it! They are seriously sooooo good and remind me so much of our little New England adventures.
