So I made a little mistake with these donuts…. I accidentally deleted all of the pictures of them.  I was backing up all of my pictures for the site onto my external hard drive and I thought they were finished copying but apparently they weren’t and as soon as I cleared my trashbin, I realized I lost at least 2 posts pictures that weren’t backed up.  Whoops! I was able to have my trashbin recovered thanks to a little Linux utility TestDisk but I found out I had three pictures saved to Google Drive because I had posted them on Instagram so I just went with those! I don’t have any pictures of the other post, Apple Pie Energy Bites, but I was planning on making another batch of them anyway because they were an awesome breakfast!

So back to the Apple Cider Baked Donuts.  They are realllllly good and I would definitely make them again! I used the Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider I made a little while back and it was so perfect in there!

Notes on baked apple cider donut recipe

  • Make sure you have a donut pan! You can pick them up on Amazon for just a few dollars!
  • The easiest way to make the donuts look good is to transfer the batter to a piping bag or ziploc bag and cut the end.  Using a spoon works too but the donuts might end up a bit lumpier.
