For those looking for a healthier donut recipe, this one by Camille Styles offers a sweetly apple cider flavor and slightly more nutritious version thanks to the donuts being baked rather than fried.
The donuts are made with flour, light brown sugar, autumnal spices, egg, butter and apple cider juice to give the dough a dense, moist and rich texture. The donuts are baked in a cake pan in the oven and then can be topped however you'd like depending on how indulgent you want to be. The dough is a rich brown color thanks to the cider and filled with cinnamon flavor. The donuts can be enjoyed as-is, or topped with a brown butter glaze or even homemade cream cheese icing with decorations.
