Baked Apple Cider Donuts recipe



All the world’s great doughnuts are fried, except there are a few rare examples of when they’re not—and this incredibly delicious and easy-to-make apple cider doughnut is one notable exception. Since we’re not going to fry these, not only are they easier, but they’re way less messy. Less time cleaning up means more time eating doughnuts.

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
Additional Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 45 mins
Servings: 12


-2 cups fresh apple cider

– 2 cups all-purpose flour

– ¾ teaspoon baking powder

– ¾ teaspoon baking soda

– ¼ teaspoon fine salt

– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

– 1 pinch ground cardamom

– 1 pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

– ½ cup white sugar

– ½ cup packed brown sugar

– ½ cup warm milk

– 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, divided

– ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract

– 1 large egg


– 1 cup white sugar, or as needed

– 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, or as needed


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter two 6-cup doughnut pans.

2. Pour apple cider into a saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and let it cook, watching carefully, until the cider is reduced to 1/2 cup. If it reduces too much, adds enough water to make 1/2 cup. Set aside until needed.

3. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg to a large bowl. Mix with a whisk until combined and set aside until needed.

4. Whisk 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, milk, 2 tablespoons melted butter, vanilla extract, and egg together in another bowl until combined. Add the apple cider reduction and the dry ingredients. Whisk together to form a slightly thick batter; do not overmix.

5. Spoon or pipe the batter into the prepared doughnut pans, filling them about 3/4 of the way up.

6. Bake in the centre of the preheated oven until the tops are lightly browned, and the doughnuts spring back slightly to the touch, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pans before removing to a sheet pan lined with a silicone baking mat. Cut out any doughnut holes as necessary.

7. If desired, while still slightly warm, brush the doughnuts lightly with the remaining melted butter. Mix 1 cup white sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon together for topping in a shallow dish; toss in doughnuts to coat. Let cool completely before serving.
