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.
