Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts are soft baked donuts that wrap your taste buds in the warm comforting flavors of fall.
**I originally published this recipe a few years ago when only Bacon Slayer and my parents read this blog. I’ve updated a few of the photos so that I could share this awesome recipe with you without cringing at my
lack of back-in-the-day photography skills. Enjoy, Friends!**
The past few days have been on the blustery, rainy side. And by rainy, I mean that monsoon like winds are blowing small rivers of water down our street. It’s cold and wet, Friends. Cold and wet days are great days to cocoon indoors and get a lot of organizational tasks done. Which I should have done yesterday, as I have a mountain of organizational tasks on the ever-growing To-Do list. We are expecting our relatives from Florida tomorrow, and we are very excited. But, as I’m sure most of you can relate, that means a whole lot of cooking and cleaning should be happening right about now. You know, in effort to be a good hostess, and all that. That’s what Responsible Me should have been doing yesterday…cleaning. Should’ve.
Irresponsible Me decided to bake doughnuts, instead.
Hooray for Irresponsible Me!
Of course since Responsible Me was chastising the decision to shirk responsibility…again. I failed to action a cast shot or any step-by-step photos, for I had no intention of sharing these here Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts on the blog. However, after tasting them, it became clear that I had a duty to share. Because I love y’all as much as I love the fall.
So trust me when I tell you that they are super easy and very, very delicious.
Although I try not to share recipes that require any weird kitchen equipment or pans, these do require a Wilton doughnut pan. They aren’t terribly expensive, and widely available on Amazon or wherever Wilton pans are sold. I recommend buying two pans, so that you don’t have to wait to bake the doughnuts in batches. When the urge strikes, I’m a firm believer of getting doughnuts into my mouth as quickly as possible. Two doughnut pans makes the process a whole heck of a lot easier.
These Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts are everything a fall doughnut should be: soft and buttery, with a cinnamon crunch. Trust me when I tell you that you need these doughnuts in your life! Besides, you can feel good about eating them because they are baked and not fried!
They are dipped in melted butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar, so there’s that. But no grease splatters or burns from frying!
Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts can be yours!
