Apples, apple cider, and apple cider donuts are perfect representations of fall. In fact, I like to enjoy all three together and savor the flavor of fall.
I was born and raised in New England and lived there until I moved to Florida to attend graduate school. One of my favorite things about New England is apple season. Apple picking, apple cider and of course, fresh warm apple cider donuts. To this day, my favorite apples are McIntosh. I love how they are sweet, juicy and tender. I even love the scent of McIntosh apples. I remember having huge bags full of McIntosh apples and trying to find various ways to eat them, cook them or can them as quick as possible. Now, every fall season, I search every possible store to get my hands on McIntosh apples and apple cider.
Even if you don’t live where you can go apple picking and sample freshly pressed cider, you can certainly make homemade apple cider donuts. These baked apple cider donuts are the perfect fall treat. They only require one bowl and are relatively quick and easy. Since they are baked, they are light and fluffy. I love serving them with a cup of cold apple cider or a cup of hot coffee.
I also grew up in the land of Dunkin’ Donuts, so for me they are donuts, but I understand that doughnuts are the same thing : )
