These baked apple cider donuts are one of our favorite desserts to whip up when the fall season arrives. Coated in cinnamon sugar and as fluffy as can be, this donut recipe is absolutely irresistible.
Traditionally, carnivals and apple festivals are where you can buy apple cider donuts, warm and freshly made. They’re usually fried apple cider donuts, which makes them different from the baked apple cider donuts showcased here.
While we don’t deny fried donuts are tasty, we prefer baked donuts because of their ease and convenience. Fortunately, with these easy apple cider donuts, you don’t have to shape the dough or deal with the mess of frying food.
Moreover, the fluffy, cake-like texture of these donuts is a major advantage. The cider donuts are tender, moist, and coated in a delightfully sweet, cinnamon-sugar topping that tastes like pure heaven. In our opinion, this recipe makes the best apple cider donuts you can possibly make at home.
