Apple Cider Doughnuts Recipe

Cake doughnuts remind me of family trips to South Dakota, a big reason we’d stop at Wall Drug before camping in the Badlands. Maple glaze was and still is my favorite. Share a batch with friends and family who appreciate a hot, fresh doughnut. —Melissa Hansen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (calculated without glazes and Ginger-Sugar) equals 335 calories, 15 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 46 mg cholesterol, 338 mg sodium, 45 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring cider to a rapid boil; cook over high heat until cider is reduced by half, about 12 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk flours, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and spices. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, melted butter and cooled cider; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened (dough will be sticky). Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour or until firm enough to shape.
  3. Divide dough in half. On a floured surface, pat each portion to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 3-in. doughnut cutter.
  4. In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 365°. Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Fry doughnut holes, a few at time, 1 to 1-1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels; cool slightly. If desired, dip tops of doughnuts into glaze. Yield: 1 dozen doughnuts plus doughnut holes.
Ginger-Sugar: In a shallow bowl, mix 3/4 cup sugar and 2-3 tablespoons ground ginger. Toss with warm doughnuts. Yield: 3/4 cup.
