My friend Michele, she of the persimmon, lemon, fig trees, and I made apple cider donuts at her house last Sunday.
It was an experience.
I found the recipe on the Smitten Kitchen blog. The dough came together very easily. We doubled the recipe to make more donuts, if you can imagine. The reducing of the apple cider is not a step to be missed...both in the donut batter and the glaze for the topping.
Remember to keep you donut dough/batter? not sure which one to use here...cold prior to cutting and frying. Ours got a little soft and we couldn't cut the donut shapes.
Also...frying just 3 at a time in a small deep fryer works best. We couldn't turn the donuts over if there were more than 3 in there at a time.
I like the cinnamon/sugar topping the best and they are heavenly when eaten warm!
Thanks to Michele's mom for finding us the fall plate. :)
Thanks for stopping by.
