What a bummer it is when it’s almost mid-October and you haven’t made it to the apple orchard or the pumpkin patch. And by bummer, we mean the sad fact that for weeks now Apple cider donuts have been calling our name. To cure our craving we’ve decided turn our kitchen into a make shift cider mill and bake up our very own apple cider donuts. All the deliciousness of fall in one tasty little treat. And by one, we mean a dozen. A bakers dozen…wink!
1 3/4cupsAll-purpose flour
Spiced sugar topping
1.5 tspCinnamon powder
Pour cider in anonstick saucepanand cover over medium heat until it’s reduced to 1/3 cup. It will become a thick syrup. Keep aside and allow it to cool down.
In a largemixing bowl, add egg white , granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, almond milk, vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Keep aside.
In another mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Dump this dry mixture into the wet mixture, along with the reduced apple cider, and mix until just combined. Don’t over-mix!
Pour batter in a greaseddonut pan, filling halfway through.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the donuts to cool down for 5 minutes at room temperature and then remove from pan.
While the donuts are cooling, mix together sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a wide bowl.
Brush melted butter all over each donut and roll in the bowl of sugar until fully coated.
