You guys, October is almost over…There’s only like a week and a half until Halloween and I JUST put out my Halloween wreath I made last year (here’s where I got the idea)! What the heck have I been waiting for?!
We just got back from our weekend at Universal Studios Hollywood for Halloween Horror Nights (recap to come!)
I seriously want to pause time and savor October just a little more. I can count the number of times I made something with pumpkin on one hand – HUGE problem! The only thing I have done right is watch Hocus Pocus and drink a good share of pumpkin beer (still trying to pick my fav for this year).
I did however get a doughnut pan recently! I am wondering why it took me so long to get one, cuz its really awesome. I have an urge to make everything into a doughnut…
One of the best things about these doughnuts is how fast and easy they were to make – not to mention you only need one bowl. Gotta love it!
The doughnut batter is spiked with apple cider – then baked till they’re fluffy. Once they come out of the oven they are brushed with butter and tossed in a cinnamon-sugar mixture – lately I have been obsessed with my Vietnamese cinnamon, it makes me want to add it to everything!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ tsp apple pie spice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup apple cider
- ¼ cup milk
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- ¼ cup white sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a doughnut pan.
- In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, apple pie spice and salt. Stir in cider, milk, eggs, vanilla and melted butter. Beat together until well blended.
- Fill each doughnut cup ¾ full. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until doughnuts spring back when touched. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan.
- In a shallow bowl mix together white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon until well combined. Brush each doughnut with melted butter then toss in cinnamon-sugar mixture until evenly coated.
