Baked Apple Cider Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

I thought I would put a fall spin on the classic cinnamon sugar donut using one of my favourite fall beverages – apple cider. These baked donuts use cider to replace the traditional milk giving them a subtle sweet and spicy flavour. A nice autumn spin.

Toss the warm donuts in a cinnamon sugar mix for a more classic version or punch up the cider flavour by drizzling with an apple cider glaze. I went for the classic approach – there’s something about a dusting of sugar on your fingers while eating a donut.
