//Food baKeD apple CiDeR Donuts ReCipe After my visit to Snow Line Orchard, I decided to make their baked apple cider donuts so I wouldn’t have to wait a year to taste them again. My donuts were more cake-like than the fluffier ones at the orchard, but tasted just as good and slightly healthier since I baked them rather than frying them. For a taste of autumn from Southern California, give these little guys a try next time you host a gathering.

instRuCtions: Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. In a small bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the liquid ingredients until smooth. Add the flour mixture and stir gently until just incorporated. Scoop the mixture into the donut wells in the pan, filling them up a tad over 3/4 full. Place in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the donuts have risen and are lightly golden on top. Remove the pans from the oven and allow the donuts to cool until they’re still warm, but easy to handle. While they’re cooling, mix together the cinnamon and sugar for the coating in a small bowl. While the donuts are still warm, toss them in the cinnamon sugar mixture until coated and serve.
