Applesauce Drop Doughnuts


3 Tbsp butter, softened

3/4 cup Sugar

3 Eggs

1 cup Applesauce (I used cinnamon flavor)

1 tsp Vanilla

4 1/2 cup Flour

3 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1/4 cup Milk

1 Apple, chopped

Oil for frying

Sugar or Powdered sugar to coat


In a deep-fat fryer heat oil to 375° F

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and spices; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Beat in applesauce and vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour. Stir in chopped apple.

Drop teaspoonfuls of batter, a few at a time, into hot oil and fry until golden, about 1 minute each side. Drain on paper towels, and roll in sugar while still warm.

Yield: About 5 dozen
