Glazed Apple Cider Donuts
It’s no secret that I love making baked donuts. I’ve written a few posts on them that you can find by clicking here. But what I love more than making them is eating them. Homemade baked donuts are our go-to family movie night treat. So, it makes sense that we should have a donut flavor for every season and holiday, right? Right. This season I have Glazed Apple Cider Donuts and man, are they scrumptious!
They have a very appley flavor with a little cinnamon that complements the whole and makes them one of the best apple flavored desserts I’ve ever had. I was looking for a more concentrated apple flavor, so I added a little LorAnn apple flavoring oil to bring that out. It did the trick nicely!
So go make some of these today. They’re easy. They’re quick. And you’ll have a nice little fall treat for you and your family.
Have you ever wondered what the right way to spell ‘donut’ is? Well, it all depends on where you’re from. Here in the United States, we spell it ‘donut’. If you’re across the pod in the UK, then you’ll spell it ‘doughnut’. Just like ‘color’ and ‘colour’. So there you go.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon LorAnn apple flavoring oil
- 1/4 cup apple cider
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3-4 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1/4 teaspoon LorAnn apple flavoring oil
- Cinnamon sugar
- Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease a 6-cavity donut pan and set it aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.
- In a separate medium bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and stir to combine.
- Fill a piping bag with the batter and pipe the batter into the donut pans, filling each cavity halfway.
- Bake for 12 minutes or until the donuts spring back when gently touched. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and cool completely.
- Mix powdered sugar and cream together. Add enough cream to create a spreadable, but not runny glaze.
- To decorate the donuts, spread the glaze onto the tops of each donut. Sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar and enjoy!
