Apple Pie Cider Doughnuts
Apple Cider Donuts
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Apple Pie Spice
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 cup apple butter
1/4 cup apple cider
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioner's sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a non stick doughnut pan with pan spray.
In a medium sized bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, Apple Pie Spice, and salt. Stir dry ingredients with a fork to make sure all dry ingredients are combined and that there are no lumps.
In a separate bowl whisk together apple butter, apple cider, canola oil, and Pure Vanilla Extract. Add the wet ingredients to dry and stir until everything is combined. I did not need to use a mixer, everything came together nicely with a wooden spoon.
Spoon the batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each mold about 3/4 full.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, When done the doughnuts will spring back when gently pressed with your finger.
Remove from oven and let cool in pan for a few minutes then transfer them to a cooling rack until ready to serve.
Combine milk and vanilla in saucepan and heat over low heat until warm
Sift and whisk confectioner's sugar into milk/vanilla extract mixture until well dissolved.
Remove from heat and allow glaze to cool until it thickens
Dip doughnuts into the glaze and let them sit in a pan or on wax paper until they cool for at least 5 minutes.
