Good morning guys! (Or afternoon! Or evening!) I made doughnuts!

Last year I was super excited because I realized we had an apple farm, like, 15 minutes from our house. Yep, took me 4 years to realize it.

The website advertised apple cider doughnuts and I was sold. Sure, picking apples and pumpkins sounds like fun but doughnuts? I will go pretty much anywhere if doughnuts are promised.

I’m very motivated by food.

Just like my dogs.

Anyway, we got there and the doughnuts were baked.

I know.

The kids took one bite and said, “Nope.”

Honestly, I like a baked doughnut when I’m at home and maybe I don’t want to consume 10,000 calories that day. You know? But baked apple cider doughnuts at an apple farm should be a crime.

Seriously.

So almost a full year later, I made Apple Cider Doughnuts!

I hate frying. We all know this. But omg, these are so worth it.

They’re cake doughnuts which are my fave and you reduce apple cider to get a really strong cider taste. And then you roll them in cinnamon sugar. Or you could make a glaze if you wanted!
