Baked Apple Cider Donuts

I have been craving apple cider donuts ever since the weather turned "fall-ish".  I finally satisfied my craving a few weeks ago after picking some up at an apple orchard in New Jersey.  Then I picked up Health magazine and saw a recipe for making healthy donuts at home and I figured, what the heck?

Ingredients

  1. Baked Apple Cider Donuts (makes 1 dozen regular size)- inspired by Health magazine
  1. 1.5 cups all purpose flour + 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (alternatively you could use 2 cups all purpose flour)
  2. 1.5 tsp baking powder
  3. 1/2 tsp salt
  4. 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  5. 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  6. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  7. 1 large egg, beaten
  8. 1/2 cup unsweetened plain applesauce
  9. 1/3 cup low fat buttermilk
  10. 1/3 cup apple cider
  11. 1/8 cup honey + 1/8 cup maple syrup (alternatively you could use 1/4 cup honey only or just 1/4 cup maple syrup only instead of a maple syrup/honey combo)
  12. 1 tbs melted butter
  13. extra sugar for coating the pan

Directions

Prepare your donut pan by spraying with cooking spray and sprinkling sugar into each donut cavity - shake to coat.  Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Combine the first five ingredients in a small bowl, stir to combine.  Combine the egg through butter in a large bowl, whisk together.  Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until the batter just comes together.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the donuts spring back when touched and are golden brown on the bottom.  Remove from the pan and set aside to cool...or take a bite of one while it's still scorching hot like I did.  :-)
