Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts

Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts

Hello friends!

Naturally the day I plan to post about sumptuous Autumn-y sweet treats turns out to be 90 degrees.








(Deep Breath)

Well, I am going to hide in the AC today and pretend it’s Autumn out and light my “Leaves” candle and everything will be okay.

Oh and eat a million doughnuts, did I mention I will eat a million doughnuts?

Awful weather is NO MATCH for doughnuts!

Though I do hope to overcome my fear of deep-frying and attempt true apple cider doughnuts this season, I just couldn’t wait to whip up a baked version so that I could eat them all without feeling guilty.
