Recipe: King Arthur Flour Cider Doughnuts

The wonderful folks at King Arthur Flour sent me some boiled cider to try out.  I have some fun plans for it, but first and foremost, cider doughnuts were calling to me.

I followed King Arthur Flour's recipe for the doughnuts, but I used two mini doughnut pans, and I scooped the batter into a pastry bag and piped it into the pans.  This worked beautifully.

After baking, I skipped the glaze from King Arthur Flour, and instead I brushed the tops of the doughnuts with a little melted butter and then dipped them in this beautiful Autumn sugar blend mixed with a little cinnamon.  I can't find this sugar blend online, we carry it at Kiss the Cook.

It's nice that they are baked, because I can feel ok giving them to my kids for breakfast.  They are totally delicious.  I would like to try adding some more of the boiled cider to the next batch, to get more of that delicious flavor in there.  I can't wait to try some more recipes using it!  Thanks, King Arthur Flour!

(Each mini doughnut has about 16g carbs without the topping, call it 20g with the sugar)
