Apple Cider Doughnuts
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min./batch
Makes1 dozen doughnuts plus doughnut holes
These are delicious. I might double the spices, but the quality of the dough is awesome. I did refrigerate overnight, just because that's how the day went. I found the dough very manageable.
Are these supposed to be cake like? or light and fluffy like doughnuts? Mine are kind of thick and dense- they did not rise in the fridge either, should they have?
Great doughnut recipe! I used cinnamon and sugar rather than ginger...my whole family enjoyed them

A delicious donut and easy to handle—once we added about 1/3 c extra flour. Next time I might try reducing the cider down to 3/4 c. Rolled some in 1/2 c sugar and the rest 1/2 c sugar/1T cinnamon. Delicious! Made a different apple cider donut recipe right afterwards which had the 3/4 c liquid (1 c cider reduced to 1/4 c plus 1/2 c buttermilk) and same amount of flour as this and while it handled well pre-cooking, it was a bit crumbly and the TOH recipe was more flavorful.
Save yourself a lot of disappointment and time, find a different recipe. Ended up refrigerating over night and it still didn't form up at all. Unable to roll out, so went with dropped, over cooked on the outside and not at all on the inside, even tried to go smaller with no success. Then we cut them in half and dropped them in again, that seemed to work! Rolled in cinnamon sugar and they tasted awful and were so heavy just not appetizing. What a waste, super disappointed.

*I made this with Strongbow Cloudy HARD Cider, my review does not reflect the recipe as written above* For anyone making these in the UK, I suggest using 4 cups cider and boiling it down to 1 cup and doubing the spice to give it more fall flavor. Alternatively, buy cloudy apple juice, which is what I would like to try next time. The batch I just made were not very sweet and tasted like plain fritters or fried dough, which was nice but not apple cider donuts. Hard cider did not give it nearly enough apple flavor.
Novice here. I never made doughnuts. This recipe was is very easy to follow. I read it would be sticky but I honestly couldn’t manage to roll it out. Being optimistic because the dough smells amazing! I took out my standard cookie scoop and my donut holes. I used the deep frier fried for 3 minuets and flipped in between. Then rolled in sugar and cinnamon after cooling. They were perfection! Grew up in Apple Country in NY eating apple cider donuts was everything in the fall. The recipe brought back memories ?? Perfect. Oooh almost forgot didn’t have whole wheat flour used all all purpose it was perfect.
Fantastic! Making a double batch today to take to a picnic. They are wonderful rolled in sugar. I tried apple juice instead of cider and they were not as pleasurable. The best is rolled in cinnamon and sugar. People can't stop eating them. put 1 Tbsp. of vinegar in the oil and the donuts won't absorb a much oil. I also used a cookie scoop and just made doughnut "holes." I am making these for a potluck Christmas party for 80 people. These doughnuts do need a glaze or rolled in sugar. This recipe is perfect for that.
