Their light, tender texture and apple cider flavor make these small bites a big hit! My mom made them every year as soon as the weather turned cool. I carry on the tradition, and the aroma always brings back cherished memories. —Rebecca Baird, Salt Lake City, Utah

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, optional
  • DOUGHNUTS:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup apple cider or juice
  • Oil for deep-fat frying

Directions

In a small bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon and, if desired, nutmeg.
In a large bowl, beat sugar and shortening until crumbly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; add to sugar mixture alternately with cider.
In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 350°. Carefully drop batter by tablespoonfuls, a few at a time, into hot oil. Fry until dark golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels; cool 5 minutes. Toss in spiced sugar. Yield: about 3 dozen.
Editor's Note: Doughnuts can be tossed with confectioners' sugar instead of spiced sugar; cool 10 minutes before coating.
