Baked Apple Cider Donuts


  • 3 dl apple juice
  • 1 2/3 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 250 g plain white flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp rape seed oil
  • 1 x eggs
  • 50 g brown sugar
  • 250 g sugar
  • 1 dl milk
  • 50 g butter


  1. Combine apple juice, 1/5 cinnamon, 1/2 nutmeg and cloves in a pot. Bring to a boil, stirring regulary, then simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. Let it cool for approx. 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. Lightly grease a donut pan or cupcake pan. If you're using a cupcake pan but want the donut look you'll have to shape little balls using tin foil. Place the balls in the middle of each cupcake mold.
  3. Mix and combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, vanilla sugar, 1/5 cinnamon, 1/2 nutmeg and salt. Set aside. In another bowl mix and combine canola oil, egg, 1/5 sugar, brown sugar, milk and the apple juice mixture. Pour the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to combine - be careful not to overmix.
  4. Pour the batter into the donut pan or cupcake pan. Bake in the oven for approx. 10 minutes. Let it cool.
  5. Meanwhile melt butter. Set aside. Combine 4/5 sugar and 3/5 cinnamon in a little bowl. Set aside.
  6. Dip the donuts in melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
