Baked Apple Cider Donuts


2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 eggs

1/2 cup apple cider

1/4 cup buttermilk

2 tbsp soft unsalted butter

1 tsp cinnamon

for topping~

2 tbsp butter, melted

1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon (or to taste)


Preheat oven to 325. Spray two donut pans with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

In another smaller bowl, blend the eggs, buttermilk, apple cider and butter. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until just blended. Batter will be on the thick side.

Spread batter into prepared donut pan. This is easiest using wet fingers. You want to fill each donut mold about 3/4th of the way full.

Place donuts in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes until fluffy and slightly golden. Invert donuts on a large piece of wax paper and let cool while you prepare the cinnamon sugar topping.

Place melted butter in a small dish and cinnamon sugar on a larger dish. Dip each donut quickly in the melted butter then the cinnamon sugar.
