Baked apple cider donuts
Whole wheat pastry flour
7 tbsp(s), divided
1½ tsp(s), divided
1 large, lightly beaten
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat 2 (6-slot) silicone donut pans (¼-cup capacity each) with nonstick spray.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, ¼ cup sugar, ¾ teaspoon cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together applesauce, cider, vanilla, and egg. Add applesauce mixture to flour mixture; stir until well combined. Scrape batter into a large zip-top plastic bag. Snip a hole in 1 bottom corner of bag; pipe batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake at 350°F until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool in pans 2 minutes; remove donuts from pans.
- In a small bowl, combine remaining 3 tbsp sugar and remaining ¾ tsp cinnamon. Lightly brush tops of donuts with butter; dip each donut, butter side down, into bowl of cinnamon sugar to coat.
- Serving size: 1 donut
