APPLE CIDER DONUTS


So I have never really been acquainted with apple cider donuts but I know for some its a staple in their fall/winter food rotation.


I had some apple cider left over so I thought why not make a yummy treat for coffee in the mornings. I followed this recipe from Cake Whiz if you want to see the original.

INGREDIENTS

Donut Batter:

- 1 ½ cups Apple Cider, to reduce into a syrup

- 1 Egg, large

- ⅓ cup Granulated Sugar

- ⅓ cup Brown Sugar

- 3 tbs. Unsalted Butter, melted

- ½ cup Milk

- 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

- 1 ¾ cup All-Purpose Flour

- 1 tsp. Baking Powder

- 1 tsp. Cinnamon

- ½ tsp. Baking Soda

- ¼ Nutmeg

- ⅛ Cardamom


Sugar Coating:

- 1 cup Granulated Sugar

- 2 tsp. Cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a small saucepan, add the apple cider and let reduce until a syrup and about 1/3 cup remains. This will take about 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. In a large bowl, mix together the egg, both sugars, butter, milk, and vanilla extract.

  4. Add the reduced syrup to the bowl. Sift in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and cardamom. Mix until just combined. Be careful not to over mix.

  5. Add your batter to a piping bag for easier filling.

  6. Grease your donut pan and pipe the batter until half filled.

  7. Bake for about 10 minutes. You don't want to over bake them, it will make them extremely tough.

  8. While the donuts bake, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.

  9. Let them cool out of the oven for a couple of minutes. While still warm, brush with melted butter and dip in the sugar coating.

  10. They can be eaten warm right away, saved at room temperature for 2-3 days or placed in the fridge for a week.
