Baked Apple Cider Donuts

One of my recent pregnancy cravings has been Apple Cider Donuts.  I love donuts in general (I mean, who doesn’t) but there’s something about those seasonally delish apple cider donuts that make me feel like the best part of the year is right around the corner.  Being pregnant in the fall has made me want them all the time, and to be honest, one of my favorite places to get them is local! Silverman’s Farm has really yummy Apple Cider donuts, but if you’ve ever been there to buy them you know there are swarms and swarms of bees all over the place this time of year, landing all over the stand where they sell them.  It makes me nervous, and especially nervous when I’m there with my kids! I thought I would come up with a recipe to recreate these at home…and here’s a little secret: my kids told me they likes these BETTER than the farm stand ones!

Making Apple Cider donuts is also such a fun, festive task to celebrate this new season and the crisp weather.  Pair with a steaming mug of coffee or tea.  They’re also great to pack in a lunch bag!

    OMG-thank you so much for this recipe. I went to Salem (because Halloween is my favorite) a few years ago and they sold these Apple Cider donuts just in a street stand and they were so good! But I’m from Texas and I can’t find them anywhere. I will definitely try this.

        I made them! Delicious! The second batch actually looked like donuts! I overfilled the pan! Also, I made the pulled pork recipe on the same day. My husband looooved it and actually ate it all! Thank you!

    I am definitely making these this weekend! How many eggs? Am I losing it or are eggs not listed on the ingredients but in instructions it says to add egg.

    These look amazing! Novice baker here – does the cider need to reduce so that it’s no longer liquid and more of a molasses consistency? Or should it still be liquid?

    Help! Is the cider supposed to curdle the milk?! Or am I supposed to leave the cider to cool? 😬

      I made them! They were delicious! We don’t have anything like this over in the UK so thank you!! Fingers crossed I can get some authentic ones when we come over next month – if Thomas Cook don’t go into administration that is..😫😢

    I can’t tell you enough how incredibly delicious these are! I made three dozen yesterday for family and friends, and everyone raved about them…and continued to do so throughout the day! My friend’s nine-year-old, who swore she didn’t like apple cider donuts, took one bite, opened her mouth in surprise and delight, then sang, “Hallelujah”. And ate two more! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, Eva. I have a strong feeling I need to stock up on apple cider!
