Hey Folks,

I hope this post finds you well. Finally, I wanted to post this awesome recipe for apple cider donuts. I found this recipe via My Darling Vegan.  True story, I have actually made these donuts a few times, but I finally ate something before so I can take my time and capture better pictures. They are really just that good!

Baking is certainly not something I thought I would get into, but I am adding it to the list. I find it hard to get really great tasting baked goods that are also vegan. These apple cider donuts definitely fit the bill, however. I love the cinnamon taste and the unexpected spice. Before I became a vegan, I used to love those cake gas station donuts. However, those contain so many carbs and sodium that I am glad I found a better version.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Generously grease a doughnut pan and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together maple syrup, apple cider, apple sauce, canola oil, and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined.
  3. Spoon or pipe batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each mold about 3/4 full.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until doughnuts springs back when gently pressed. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for a few minutes before transferring doughnuts onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  5. To make glaze, whisk together powdered sugar and apple cider in a small shallow bowl. In a separate bowl, combine ingredients for cinnamon sugar topping.
  6. Once doughnuts have cooled, dip the tops of each doughnut into the glaze. Immediately sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  7. Let glaze harden and enjoy!
