We love apple season at our house. It’s the time of year to go apple picking and make all kinds of apple recipes. Here’s an easy, sweet treat: apple cider donuts.
Mix the ingredients and put into a donut pan (I like this donut pan.) They’ll rise, so fill the pans about 2/3 the way full.
Let the donuts cool a bit, but while they’re still warm you’ll toss them with the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat the donuts. Because they’re still warm, the sugar mixture will stick.
You can eat them while they’re warm, or wait until they cool.
But I bet you won’t be able to wait!
