Ingredients

  • 2

    cups all purpose flour

  • ¾

    cup brown sugar

  • tsp baking powder

  • ¼

    tsp baking soda

  • 1

    tsp salt

  • 2

    tsp cinnamon

  • 2

    eggs

  • 2

    tbsp unsalted butter, softened

  • ½

    cup apple cider

  • ¼

    cup buttermilk [or ¼ cup of milk with ½ tsp of vinegar....let stand for 5-10 minutes before using]

  • Topping:

  • 2

    tbsp butter, melted

  • ¼

    cup brown sugar

  • ¼

    cup white sugar

  • 1

    tbsp cinnamon (or to taste)

Directions

1) In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. 2) In a smaller bowl, mix together the softened butter with the eggs until fluffy (doing this ensures that your butter doesn't re-solidify once the cold buttermilk and cider are added). Add buttermilk and apple cider, and mix well. 3) Pour wet ingredients into the dry, and stir until just blended. Try not to overmix! 4) Spread the batter into a greased donut pan. I used a large spoon to drop the batter in, or placing your batter into a pastry bag to pipe into the pan makes the process nice and easy. Fill each mold about 3/4 full. 5) Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. You may want to break open a test donut just to make sure the inside isn't gummy! 6) For the topping: melt the butter in a bowl that will fit a donut inside it. Then, dip each donut quickly into the butter, and then into the cinnamon sugar mixture. *These are best on the first day, as they tend to get a bit soggy once you place them in a container.
