Apple Cider Doughnuts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Apple Cider Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp apple cider
Cinnamon Sugar Topping
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a donut pan and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together maple syrup, apple cider, apple sauce, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined.

  3. Spoon or pipe the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each mold about 3/4 full.

  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the donuts springs back when gently pressed. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring doughnuts onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

  5. To make the glaze, whisk together powdered sugar and apple cider in a small shallow bowl. In a separate bowl, combine ingredients for cinnamon sugar topping.

  6. Once doughnuts have cooled, dip the tops of each doughnut into the glaze. Immediately sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

  7. Let the glaze harden and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Serving and Storing - Serve donuts immediately as a morning pastry or afternoon snack. Store leftover donuts in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. They can also be frozen for up to 2 months. When ready to eat, pull them out of the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature for 2-3 hours

Recipe Tips

  1. Generously spray the donut pan before piping in the batter to ensure the donuts do not stick to the pan.
  2. The most accurate way to measure flour is to spoon it into your measuring cup, leveling it off with the back of a knife.
  3. Let the donuts rest in the pan for 10 minutes before flipping them onto a wire cooling rack. Let donuts cool completely before dipping them in the glaze to prevent the glaze from melting.
