Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts
There is nothing better than waking up to a refreshing cup of hot tea served with nicely baked apple cider doughnuts! This combination would give you a good start to your morning, something that everyone always looks forward to.
This breakfast would even be better when you have your extended family visiting so that you can not only share the nice taste but also the love. This simple and yet special treat would be much appreciated by the family who will feel special and very welcomed.
The doughnuts are baked in a special way instead of the widely known way of deep frying. The end result will look like crescent-shaped cupcakes, with beautiful golden brown color.
The taste of the apple cider doughnut will bring back the memories of traditionally deep friend apple cider doughnut but only that this time you will be taking the modernly baked doughnut.
The advantage of baking the doughnuts is that it is less messy and has minimal work involved as compared to the deep fried apple cider doughnuts.
Once you have prepared your dough and shaped them, you will only layer them into a baking pan into the oven then time them, and from there you can other things like preparing your tea which will be served with the doughnuts once they are ready.
This process therefore means that you will not necessarily need to have a doughnut pan since you can effectively use the baking pan.
It is a good idea to make the baked apple cider doughnuts if you are looking to try something new, or if you want to show your appreciation to family and friends.
