Baked Apple Donuts

#AppleWeek is here and I'm excited to be sharing my Baked Apple Donuts recipe with you!  If you have never made homemade donuts before this is a great recipe to try, plus each bites tastes like fall.

I love trying out different kitchen gadgets and tools, so for Christmas last year I asked for a donut pan.  I've been having fun creating different donut recipes ever since and these Baked Apple Donuts are no different.

The apple cider and applesauce give the donut great flavor, plus keep the cake soft and moist.  The Spice House's Cake Spice, a blend of cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and cloves, reminds you of fall and the Rodelle Vanilla glaze is the perfect sweet topping!

Baked Apple Donuts

2 1/2 cups Flour
1 cup Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp The Spice House Cake Spice
1 tsp Salt
2 cup Apple Cider
1/2 cup Applesauce
2 Eggs
2 tsp Rodelle Vanilla

Vanilla Cider Glaze:
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 Tbsp Rodelle Vanilla
1 Tbsp Apple Cider
The Spice House Vanilla Sugar

In a saucepan bring the apple cider to a boil for about 15 minutes, or until it is reduced by half.  Let the cider cool completely.

Whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cake spice and salt).  Then mix in the rest of the batter ingredients (1 cup cooled reduced apple cider, applesauce, eggs and vanilla).

Spray your donut pan with cooking oil and pipe the batter into each mold.  Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes.  Let the donuts cool and then dip the top of each in the glaze (powdered sugar, vanilla and apple cider whisked together).  Sprinkle each donut with vanilla sugar.  Yields 18 donuts.

There is just something about Apple Donuts in the fall and I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do!  This donut recipe is easy to make and my kids literally wait at the table til I say they can have one.  What recipe do you love making with your kids or grandkids?  Remember to Comment for a Cause!

Baked Apple Donuts with Vanilla Cider Glaze #AppleWeek


  1. I'll take one with a large glass of cold cider please.

  2. Miss L is cute as can be and so patient waiting to eat one of those beauties! I really like that cake spice and that glaze sounds amazing. Now I'm hungry just thinking about it!

    1. She did so good waiting. What was really funny was I was taking pictures and I didn't realize she was sticking her hand under the donuts to lick up glaze that had dropped on the table until I looked through the photos to make sure I didn't want another view and noticed her hand in the photos :)
