These Irresistible Apple Cider Donuts Will Sweeten Your Autumn

Whether you drink it cold or spike it with rum, the sweet cinnamon-y goodness of apple cider makes it hard to drink just one glass. The beverage is perfect for fall and can incorporated into a number of unique recipes, including these delicious apple cider baked donuts.

If you thought donuts were too difficult to make at home, think again. A recipe from Laura in the Kitchen notes that the prep and baking time totals only 20 minutes. So, save yourself a walk to Dunkin’ Donuts.

The recipe requires first mixing together dry ingredients like flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Then, combine this mixture with sugar, an egg, vanilla extract, apple cider and apple sauce.

Next, use a piping bag to put your batter into a donut pan. Pop them into the oven at 350 degrees and let them bake for 10 minutes. The deliciousness doesn’t stop there, however; a sugary glaze atop the donuts is really what makes this recipe.

The glaze requires powdered sugar, orange zest, pumpkin pie spice and apple cider. Watch a video demonstration of the baking process below.

The pumpkin pie spice mixed with the orange zest and apple flavors combine for an irresistible autumn treat. But let’s be series, donuts never go out of season. So, feel free to make this recipe any time of year.

An added bonus about baking these bad boys? Your house is guaranteed to smell amazing while they are in the oven. As the host notes in the video, the donuts make great holiday gifts or are an easy item to add to a party’s dessert table.
