Homemade donuts

We recently went to a Apple Orchard and had some apple cider donuts there, they were amazing. So I got to thinking I wonder if I could make them. I found this recipe here on Pinterest for Apple cider donuts and they were pretty darn good. They all got ate, mostly by my son he loved them. I found the donut pan at Target!

Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts

Yield: 18 doughnuts
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


For the doughnuts:

  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 4 tbs. butter, at room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (I used non-fat)

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

  • 4 tbs. melted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (or more, if desired)


For the doughnuts:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small saucepan, boil the apple cider until it is reduced to 1/4 cup (out 15-20 minutes).
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and the sugar. Add in the eggs and mix well.
  4. Stir in the buttermilk and reduced cider.
  5. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and the nutmeg.
  6. Mix the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients, mix just enough to combine.
  7. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray. Either pipe or spoon the batter into the each mold until they are about 3/4 of the way full. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow doughnuts to cool before coating.

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

  1. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
  2. Using a pastry brush, brush the melted butter on both sides and in the middle of each doughnut. Dip and roll the doughnut in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat. Repeat with the remaining doughnuts.
