Bake up some bite-sized goodness with our recipe for Apple Cider Donut "Holes." In every bite you'll discover a whole lot of fall flavor and sugary-cinnamon yumminess. And, because these bake up in your muffin tin, they're super easy to make! 

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  
  • CINNAMON SUGAR TOPPING
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, and salt; mix well and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, egg, and butter; whisk until smooth. Add in buttermilk, apple cider, applesauce, and vanilla; mix well. Add flour mixture and whisk just until combined. Spoon batter into muffin cups filling three-quarters full.
  4. Bake 8 to 11 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes then remove to a wire rack.
  5. In a bowl, mix Cinnamon Sugar Topping. While donuts are still warm, toss in Topping until evenly coated. Serve warm.

I don't have a mini muffin tin. Can these be made in a regular size pan?

Hello! We have not tried this recipe in a regular size muffin tin, but we believe it would work. An approximate cooking time would be 18 to 22 minutes, or until they're cooked in the center. We'd love to know how they turn out for you!

Made these today and they tasted good but the cinnamon/sugar wasn't sticking... not sure why. Solved the problem by brushing each one with some apple cider and then rolling in the cinnamon/sugar. Yummm !!

I've always wanted to make apple donuts for myself! Will have to try this.

I made these today - they are delicious! I did make 1 substitution, I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 11 Baking Flour instead of the regular all-purpose flour. The doughnuts turned out great - cake-like, airy and moist. I ended rolling 1/2 the doughnuts in powered sugar too while still warm. This recipe's a keeper, thank you Mr. Food for sharing.
