Simple and light, these baked donut holes can be coated in a glaze or with cinnamon sugar. See tips for apple cider flavored!
Flour | Sugar | Baking Soda Baking Powder | Cinnamon Nutmeg | Salt | Egg Applesauce | Vanilla | Butter Powdered Sugar | Milk
Preheat oven to 400F and butter a mini muffin pan or donut hole pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Stir in the egg, milk, applesauce, and vanilla, whisking until just combined. Some lumps can remain - just do not overmix as this will leave the donut holes more dense.
Pour the batter into the greased donut hole pan and bake at 400F for 10-12 min or until the donut holes have puffed up and are light brown on the edges. Place them on a baking rack to cool.
MAKE THE TOPPINGS Mix cinnamon and sugar and stir into melted butter. Whisk powdered sugar and milk or apple cider until smooth and drippy. Roll the donut holes into the toppings.
So excited I can have apple cider donuts!!! The fairs here have apple cider donuts, so being able to emulate that.. YES!!
