Apple Donuts

It is apple picking time.  These are a  great apple treat.  

4 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
1 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce
½ cup buttermilk
¼ cup butter
Vegetable oil

Melt your butter.  Combine all of your wet ingredients and set aside.  Combine all of your dry ingredients (first 5 ingredients) and slowly add them to your wet.

Roll out your donuts on a well dusted board until they are about 1/2 inch.  Using a donut cutter cut your donuts. Heat your vegetable oil for frying.  Wait until the oil is hot.  Drop in one at a time and do not over crowd.  Once they have browned, turn over.  Take out and put on paper towel to drain.  Also fry the donut holes.  They are my favorites because they are bite size. 

You may frost them or dip them in cinnamon and sugar.  I’m also sharing an apple glaze below to frost them.

Homemade Applesauce

5 cooking apples cored and seeded
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup apple juice or apple cider
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Peel and core your apples, cutting them up into small sections so they will cook faster.

Combine apples, sugar; apple juice, and ground cinnamon. Bring to boiling and reduce heat to low. Cook for 45 to 60 minutes or until apples are soft enough to puree. Transfer apple mixture to a blender or food processor if you don’t like chucky apple sauce. Cover and blend or process until sauce texture. Makes about 3 1/2 cups.

Applesauce Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar
¾ cup Homemade Applesauce or unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup water

In a medium bowl combine powdered sugar, applesauce, and water. Whisk together until smooth. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

The terrible heat is gone so I'll be playing in my kitchen again.  I'm picking apples today and going to start canning.  Hope you have a great day.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
