Baked Apple Cider Doughnut Recipe

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

One of my favorite times of the year fall eating these baked apple cider doughnuts!

I like to smooth over the thick batter with an index finger moistened with water before baking.
Also make sure the apple is cut into fine bits.

They smell wonderful baking!
