I love anything apple flavored. Apple pie, apple muffins, and these doughnuts are another one I’ll definitely add to my list. I had never made doughnuts at home before but as long as you don’t mind doing some deep frying on your stove, these are very simple and rewarding when you get to bite into the warm, just out of the oil doughnuts. Crispy on the outside but light and fluffy on the inside, these are perfect when rolled in a little cinnamon sugar and eaten just as they are.
4 Tbsp. Butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinammon
Pinch of nutmeg
1 1/2 cups apple cider
1/2 cup buttermilk
1. Reduce apple cider to 3/4 cups.
2. Cream together butter and sugar.
3. Add eggs, then add dry ingredients. Mix.
4. Add apple cider reduction and buttermilk.
5. Fry at 350 degrees, about 6 minutes, making sure to turn the doughnuts so they fry evenly. Also make sure the oil is hot so they don’t absorb the grease. I used a spoon to plop them into the oil for small doughnut holes.
6. Cool on paper towels and roll in cinnamon sugar.
