Baked Apple Donuts

These donuts are baked not fried and incorporate an apple into the batter. They have a great texture and are excellent with morning coffee.

Since it is Fall, you have to make these. There’s no way around it. It’s your duty.


Combine these ingredients in a bowl.

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Use a fork to blend in 4 Tbs. cold unsalted butter until the mixture is crumbly.

In another bowl, whisk 1 egg.

Add to that:

  • 1 apple, peeled and shredded
  • 1/2 cup milk

Add that to the flour mixture. It will be a thick batter. Place the batter into a ziplock bag and cup off the tip. Using it like a pastry bag, fill the donut tin up about half way. (You don’t want to lose the donut hole)

Bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 20 minutes.

While they are still warm, dip the donuts into mixture of cinnamon and sugar.

They taste like an old fashioned plain donut with a kick. You totally get the nutmeg and a faint apple flavor.
