Apple Cider Donuts

I couldn't wait any longer, not one more minute. I had to make these donuts last night. I'd been dragging the recipe around from a magazine insert, salivating from dusk to dawn. The madness had to end. And such delectable madness they were. I still think the buttermilk maple are my favorite, but there's room in my heart for more than one toroid. (I only know the word toroid from my crossword puzzle obsession; it means donut shaped.) The recipe and pic came from Home Made Simple, link below.
And now that you're here, can you do me a quick favor? Vote for my French's recipe one more time. There's just a few days left, so don't forget to vote every 24 hours. I'm hoping to become a finalist so I can get a trip to NYC.
I'm off to class, running a little late as usual. Tonight my students are analyzing the film Sense and Sensibility, looking for characteristics of the Age of Reason and the Romantic Era. Should be fun for all my Jane Austen fans.
I'll be back tomorrow with that hearty beef stew with cider for Halloween.
See you then.

I did the buttermilk donuts last Halloween and Thanksgiving. FANTASTIC!!! I have now discovered I am gluten intolerant (along with my daughter Becky). Don't know if I want to bother with the buttermilk donuts and our second class gluten free flour, doubt that they will be that good. Maybe we will just suffer the consequences in order to indulge...

i've been voting frequently, although perhaps not daily. some friend i am!

i'm so glad you found this recipe, as my family adores apple cider donuts from apple hill. then again, i loved the maple buttermilk last year (which joyful noise brought to our halloween party.) so many donuts, so little time/calories-to-spare:)

So true, Michal. And now my mom wants chocolate donuts, so Saturday morning you can guess what I'll be doing. Yum.

These look and sound delicious! I saw a request on a forum some while back asking for cider donuts and recipes were hard to come by apparently. I shall refer them here.

I made pumpkin spice donuts yesterday morning and they were yummy! I bet apple cider ones are good too. I will have to try them next year, since donuts are a 1 time a yr thing, right? :-)
I have your red curry chicken on the stovetop right now. Can't wait to try it!

I've never made donuts before, because I'm convinced that I would ruin them- but these look so delicious, that I might have to just try them out!

Valerie said...

Such perfect looking donuts!
