Baked Apple Cider Donuts

I have had a donut pan for years and never used it, it is time.  This recipe comes from Shurgary Sweets, it is a much healthier donut, wait, can those two words can be used together?  Who can resist a donut with glaze and cinnamon sugar.  If you don’t have a donut pan, use a muffin pan or mini muffin pan, they don’t have to have a hole in the middle!

Baked Apple Cider Donuts

2 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Glaze & Sugar Topping:
2 Tbl apple cider
1¼ cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbl cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325°.  In large bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon.  Mix until blended.  Add apple cider, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla.  Beat for about 2 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Spray donut pan with non-stick spray.  Pour 1/4 cup batter into each donut slot in pan.  Bake for about 10 minutes, until donuts spring back when touched. Cool slightly before removing from pan.

For glaze, whisk together apple cider, powdered sugar and allspice until completely smooth. In separate bowl mix sugar and cinnamon.

Dip each donut into glaze (top of donut only) and then into cinnamon/sugar mix (can dip or sprinkle cinnamon sugar over glaze). The glaze will run down the sides and coat nearly the whole donut. Allow to dry on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
