No, you can’t really call them healthy, but these Baked Caramel Apple Cider Doughnuts are delicious. They’re kind of like caramel apples in softer doughnut form–a great treat for fall. I normally prefer the fried doughnuts, even though they are less healthy than the baked ones, but these really are good! They’re certainly a lot better than any store-bought baked doughnuts that I’ve ever had.
If you don’t have a doughnut pan, you can use a muffin pan and just make these into muffins. They’ll taste great, either way. I have to say, for baked doughnuts, these are rather soft and moist. I’m guessing that the generous amount of butter in the dough helps, not to mention all of that heavy cream in the glaze – mmm, so good! I really am a sucker for that caramel apple flavor, and the fact that these are a lot easier to eat than actual caramel apples doesn’t hurt.
