Glazed Apple Cider Donuts
Makes 15-18 donuts
1 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cane sugar
3/4 cup cashew milk or milk of your choice
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups apple cider, reduced to 1/2 cup
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1 cup powdered sugar
5 tablespoons cashew milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a donut pan with non stick cooking spray. Put the cashew milk and apple cider vinegar In a small bowl and mix them together. Set it aside for a couple minutes to active our “buttermilk”.
In the bowl of a stand mixer add the melted butter and the sugars and cream them together. Once mixed add the eggs one at a time on low speed. Next add the cashew milk, vanilla and maple syrup. Mix together gently for a minute.
In a medium bowl add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and the salt. Wisk together until there is no lumps.
4. Slowly add half of the flour mixture into the wet mixture and mix on low speed until incorporated. Add the rest of the flour on low speed and mix just until combined. Do not over mix your batter.
5. Pour the donut batter into a gallon ziplock bag and snip off the end. Pipe the donut batter into the prepared donut mold and pop into the preheated oven for 13-15 minutes.
While donuts are baking make the glaze. In a small bowl mix together the powdered sugar, cashew milk, and vanilla. You might need to add more or less of each ingredient. It should be a thick but spreadable consistency.
Once donuts are removed from the oven, let them sit in the pan for a couple minutes and then remove them to a wire rack to cool. Once cooled on the rack for a couple more minutes dip them into the glaze and add sprinkles! ✨
