The Farmer’s Daughter Baked Apple Cider DoughnutsPrint Print Without Images
Hey there, my name is Kelsey, from The Farmer’s Daughter blog! As my blog name implies, I am the daughter of two farmers, and actually still live and work on our family’s apple farm here in Abbotsford (Willow View Farms).
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1) In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
2) In a smaller bowl, mix together the softened butter with the eggs until fluffy (doing this ensures that your butter doesn’t re-solidify once the cold buttermilk and cider are added). Add buttermilk and apple cider, and mix well.
3) Pour wet ingredients into the dry, and stir until just blended. Try not to overmix!
4) Spread the batter into a greased donut pan. I used a large spoon to drop the batter in, or placing your batter into a pastry bag to pipe into the pan makes the process nice and easy. Fill each mold about 3/4 full.
5) Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
6) For the topping: melt the butter in a bowl that will fit a donut inside it. Then, dip each donut quickly into the butter, and then into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve! *These are best when eaten on the first day.
