If you haven’t made homemade donuts yet, now is the time! We love baking donuts – so much healthier than frying donuts and easy to make. Vanilla, chocolate and lemon are some we have shared in the past. Today we are so excited to share the best baked apple cider donuts recipe. Baked apple cider goodness, topped with cinnamon sugar blend. They are so yummy. 

You could also drizzle a light maple icing if you want them to be sweeter. Just mix some maple syrup with powdered sugar and milk to make it and then drizzle it on top.

We highly recommend this donut baking pan.
