Total: 30 minutes



  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup apple cider
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp melted butter

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a donut pan.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the apple cider, egg, applesauce, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
