These apple cider donuts are made easy in your dash donut maker! Halloween decoration options included!
- Donut Ingredients:
- • 1 cup apple cider
- • 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- • 1 egg
- • 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- • 1⁄4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
- • 1 1⁄2 tsp baking powder
- • 1 tsp vanilla extract
- • 1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
- • 1⁄4 tsp nutmeg
- • 1⁄4 tsp salt
- Topping Ingredients:
- • 2 tbsp sugar
- • 1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
- • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- • 1⁄4 cup confectioners sugar
- • 2 tsp apple cider
- • variety of orange, yellow, black, candy sprinkles and round non-pariels
- • candy corns *optional
- In a small saucepan, boil apple cider until reduced to 1⁄2 cup. Set aside to cool.
- Melt butter in a small saucepan, or microwave. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
- Add brown sugar, egg, yogurt, and vanilla.
- Add melted butter.
- Add reduced apple cider.
- Thoroughly mix all ingredients until it's a smooth batter. Set aside.
- Gather topping ingredients. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small shallow dish. Place
butter in a small shallow dish. Combine confectioners sugar and apple cider to make a glaze and
place in a small dish. Set aside. *Using shallow dishes allows you to easily dip the donuts into
the butter, glaze, and cinnamon sugar.
- Spray or oil Dash Donut Maker and plug in to heat up. You don't need to re-oil in between
- Spoon batter into donut spaces. I filled them up all the way. *You'll notice the batter start to rise
before you finish filling all the spaces and that's ok. Set the timer for 1 minute.
- Flip the donuts using a cake tester or long toothpick. *The donuts will be quite hot. Set your
timer for 2 minutes. (the Dash recipe book calls for cooking the donuts for a longer period of
time, 5 1⁄2 minutes total, I don't recommend it.)
- Lift the donuts out and set on the wire rack until all the donuts have been made. You should be
able to make about 4 batches.
- To decorate cinnamon sugar donuts: dip the donuts into the butter and then immediately into the
cinnamon sugar mix. Set on the rack.
- To decorate with sprinkles: using fingers or a cake tester, chopstick, or other long thin tool, dip
donuts into glaze. Place donuts glaze side up on wire rack and using fingers or a small spoon,
quickly add candy sprinkles and toppings before the glaze hardens. *Kids would love
decorating these donuts and personalizing their own.
- Serve with milk, apple cider, coffee, or tea. Enjoy!
