Apple Cider Donuts


These donuts were really a labor of love 🙈🙈 Halfway through making the dough I realized I left my donut pan at my moms house, so I made these in muffin tins with little balled up pieces of tin foil in the middle 😂 Nevertheless, they were still DELICIOUS!


Ingredients:

1.5 cups apple cider
2 cups wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter (unsalted)
1 egg
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup golden sugar (or white)
1/2 cup Milkadamia unsweetened macadamia milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Simmer apple cider on low, in a nonstick pan. Simmer until only about 1/2 cup of thicker “apple cider” remains. Be careful not to over reduce, it will turn to a sticky stringy mess if left too long
2. Preheat the oven to 350 F
3. Mix together all dry ingredients: four, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt
4. In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients: cooled reduced apple cider, butter, egg, sugar, milk and vanilla extract
5. Combine wet and dry ingredients
6. USING A DONUT PAN, or a muffin tin (like I had to 😂) pour dough into greased pan – if using muffin tin, make very small muffins. If you fill the entire tin it will take MUCH longer to bake
7. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. For muffins, make sure toothpicks come out clean when poked through the center
8. Optional, I made a quick powdered sugar, milk, cinnamon and vanilla icing that I drizzled over the warm donuts
9. Happy Fall! Enjoy your apple cider donuts 🍩
