A trip to a local apple orchard last weekend got me thinking about cider doughnuts. After all, the Cortlands and Macouns are great, but the most immediate pleasure of a day picking apples is a warm cider doughnut and a mug of hot cider. The only thing is, cider doughnuts never seem to taste all that cider-y or apple-y. So when I started looking for a recipe, I was especially intrigued by these baked cider doughnuts from Evan at swEEts by E, packed with cider, chopped apples, and maple syrup (and topped with apple-cider sauce). This weekend, I’m skipping the orchard and making the doughnuts at home.

    Pie, they did turn out quite apple-y, as hoped. The maple syrup added a rounded sweetness, but I bet if you wanted to make them even more cider-y, you could replace it with boiled cider. I've only used boiled cider once myself, in a pecan pie (which was great btw!)

    Please report back-- I agree that cider doughnuts are never really cider-y. Have you ever used boiled cider? You can get it from King Arthur Flour-- it sounds like that might add some cider kick too.
