"Wonderful and warm, these donuts are delicious! Though perfect for fall, these treats are great year-round. I even make the batter the night before and then finish them in the morning. I also like to dust them with powdered sugar...YUM!"

This recipe makes excellent donuts. They tasted just like the apple cider donuts from my local bakery. My donut cutter is on the large side, so I only got a dozen out of this recipe. I ended up with around 28 "holes" as I used a small cookie cutter to portion out the extra dough.
I followed this recipe exactly, and the dough is a bit sticky at first, I considered adding extra flour, but after it rose the first time it didn't need it. It rolled out very nicely and was easy to work with. I fried these for two minutes per side at 375, and they were perfect. I coated half in the cinnamon-sugar and made a glaze for the other half. These were really good, there's none left!
