Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 9 doughnuts / 20 doughnut holes
  • ½ cup Apple Cider
  • 2 tablespoons Butter, softened
  • ¼ cup (Approx. 2 ounces) Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • 2 cups (Approx. 10 ounces) All Purpose Flour, plus additional for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Apple, cut into a ⅛-inch dice (about 1 cup)
  • ¼ cup Oil for frying
  • Cinnamon and Sugar for dusting
  1. Pour the apple cider into a small pan set over high heat. Bring to a boil and allow to reduce by half. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg, then mix in the reduced cider and milk.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir half of the flour mixture into the wet ingredients. Fold in the diced apple, then mix in the remaining flour.
  4. Generously flour a one foot square piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil. Turn the dough out onto the paper. Flour the top of the dough and use your hands to press/flatten it into a ½-inch thick disk. Chill for 15 minutes to help the dough firm up.
  5. Heat oven to 425F. Remove the dough from the fridge and cut into doughnut shapes using a doughnut cutter, cookie cutters, or a glass. Cut additional “holes” from the scraps of dough left over.
  6. Carefully transfer each doughnut and the “holes” to a baking sheet likes with parchment or a silpat. Bake at 425F for 10 minutes.
  7. Optional: For a crispier exterior, heat the oil in shallow frying pan until very hot. Cook doughnuts for 10 seconds on each side, or until lightly browned. Dust with cinnamon and sugar while they are still hot. Enjoy!
