Apple Pie Donuts



 We have really been giving our little donut maker a workout lately. We did the Chocolate Chip Donuts and Pumpkin Spice Donuts, as well as a few gluten free recipes. This time around we went with Apple Pie Donuts. My secret was that I overfilled the pan just a touch so that there wasn't a hole in the center of each donut, then I placed a dollop of apple pie filling inside of that. So cute and so yummy! 


Apple Pie Donuts
Makes 10-12 donuts

  • 1½ cups plain flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon mixed spice
  • 9 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup canned pie apple, mashed
  • ½ cup canned milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Optional:
Powdered sugar glaze (Use about 1 to 2 cups of powdered sugar and a few teaspoons of milk to thin it)

1. Preheat Donut machine. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in the
center. Whisk in the butter, apple, milk and egg until mixture forms a smooth batter.

2. Spray machine with cooking oil. Fill bases of preheated donut rings with half of the batter.
Close lid and cook for 6 minutes or until donuts are golden and cooked. Use a non-stick
spatula to transfer donuts to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter to make 10 donuts
in total. Garnish with extra apple pie filling and a simple powdered sugar glaze.

    2. Aww I wasn't sure if you'd remember! I've been meaning to email you to say hi since I found your blog but I tend to get pre-occupied or maybe just absent-minded sometimes. LOL I think I found you via Pinterest and glad I did, it's good to see you're still blogging. I took a step back for a while, and sometimes it's hard to get in gear with it, but I'm glad to be back at it.

      I just posted the Apple Pie Donuts on my blog and gave a link back to you. I made a few minor changes, but nothing that changed them much from yours I'm sure. Definitely loved them and will make them again! Here is the link to my post:
