With the sweet taste of Apple Cider, these Apple Cider Doughnuts are the perfect introduction to the Fall. These soft and sweet doughnuts are everything Fall is made of.
Thank you, Bobby Flay for this amazing and easy recipe for Apple Cider Doughnuts!
One of the best treats for the Fall is Apple Cider Doughnuts. Have you ever gone to a Pumpkin Patch Farm where they sell warm Apple Cider, Pumpkin Pies, Apple Pie, and Apple Cider Doughnuts? It is the most delicious and the “foodgasmic” smell that food can create on this planet. When I smell apples cooking and pies baking I get super excited and even warm inside because it just confirms for me that fall is indeed here! Oh, and when those leaves start changing colors, that is when my heart melts and I fall in love with nature all over again. It is such an amazing thing to witness.
I have wanted and dying to make Apple Cider Doughnuts for like ever. I have had them made from scratch on a farm and I swear they are the most amazing treats to have in the world! Typically, when something tastes that good to me, I actually don’t make them because then I know in my mind that the recipe is always in my reach, the recipes come out amazing, and I can make them anytime I want, which is not good (in this case of the Apple Cider Doughnuts).
Why? Well, I mentioned that I have Gestational Diabetes. Yea I hear your woes and see your sad faces that say “Sucks for you Nicole but I’m about to make and enjoy these doughnuts”. To that, I only have one thing to say….” Kiss-my-patooty!” I would also like to add, “Please think of me when you are eating these”. They are so divine and delicious. You can smell the apple, the cinnamon, and the fall love in the air when you are eating these things. Okay, okay so I had one donut, but I can’t make something, share it on my blog, and can’t tell you if they are good or not. Even if the recipe came from one of my favorite celebrity chefs, Bobby Flay.
If you decide to make them, I will tell you that my first batch of doughnuts came out very dark, they still tasted great but it was pretty dark because of the apple cider syrup that is in the recipe. Don’t get freaked out. You only need to fry these for like 1 minute on each side to come out to a beautiful golden color. I hope you like this recipe as much as I did. Happy Fallings!
