Hello Lorraine,

Apple Cider Donuts

Servings: 12-24, depending on capacity of donut pan

Comments:
These donuts are low in fat as they are baked in the oven instead 
of deep fried. Good for people on low-colesterol, low fat diets.

Ingredients:
Approximately 3 tbsp. sugar for preparing pans
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup apple butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup apple cider
1/3 cup nonfat plain yogurt
3 tbsp. vegetable oil

Special Pan:
You will need a mini bundt baking pan with 6 or 12 cavities or
A 6 or 12 cavity donut baking pan*

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 C). Coat molds of a mini-Bundt 
pan with nonstick cooking spray or oil. Sprinkle with sugar, shaking 
out excess. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, 
baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside. In another bowl, whisk 
together egg, brown sugar, apple butter, maple syrup, cider, yogurt 
and oil. Add dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Divide 
half the batter among the prepared molds, spooning about 2 generous 
tbsp. of batter into each mold. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until 
the tops spring back when touched lightly. Loosen edges and turn the 
cakes out onto a rack to cool. Clean the mini-bundt pan, then re-coat 
it with oil and sugar. Repeat with remaining batter.

Makes 12-24 donuts, depending on the size pan you are using.

Apple-Cider Doughnuts with Maple Glaze

Doughnuts
Approx. 3 Tbsp. sugar for preparing pans
2 cups all-purpose white flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup apple butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup apple cider
1/3 cup nonfat plain yogurt
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil,
preferably canola oil
Maple Glaze
1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4-1/3 cup pure maple syrup

In the Vermont countryside, there are two sure signs of spring: 
frost heaves in the road and smoke rising from the chimneys of 
the sugarhouses. This  recipe was inspired by treats you find 
while touring this corner of America:  cider doughnuts and maple 
syrup. A mini-Bundt pan produces adorable doughnut-shaped cakes, 
but if you do not have one, you can use a regular Bundt pan and 
make a coffee cake; bake it in a 375-degree F oven for 25 to 30  
minutes.

To make Doughnuts: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat molds of 
a mini-Bundt pan with nonstick  cooking spray or oil.  Sprinkle 
with sugar, shaking out excess.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking 
soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside.  In another bowl, whisk 
together egg, brown sugar, apple butter, maple syrup,  cider, 
yogurt and oil. Add dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.  
Divide half the batter among the prepared molds, spooning about 
2 generous tablespoonfuls of batter into each mold. Bake for 10 
to 12 minutes, or until  the tops spring back when touched lightly. 
Loosen edges and turn the cakes  out onto a rack to cool. Clean the 
mini-Bundt pan, then re-coat it with oil  and sugar. Repeat with 
the remaining batter.

To make maple glaze: In a bowl, combine confectioners sugar and 
vanilla. Gradually whisk in enough maple syrup to make a coating 
consistency. Dip the shaped side (underside) of the "doughnuts" 
in the glaze to coat. Then set them, glazed-side up on a rack 
over wax paper for a few minutes until the  glaze has set.
