These baked donuts are so easy to make and your entire house will smell like fall. Apple cider, cinnamon sugar… what could be tastier?!

Non-Stick Donut Pan


– 1 cups apple cider (reduced to 3/8 cup or 6 tablespoons)
– 1 cinnamon stick
– 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/4 granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup light brown sugar
– 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
– 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
– 6 tablespoons buttermilk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 egg

1. Reduce the apple cider on a stove. Pour your apple cider and cinnamon stick to a saucepan. Bring to a boil than reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.

2. In a bowl, add melted butter, sugar and brown sugar. Mix.

3. Add buttermilk and stir. Then add your egg and vanilla.

4. Sprinkle in the cinnamon and add your flour, then stir or whisk. Add your baking powder and salt.

5. Add your reduced apple cider. And stir.

6. Pour batter into your nonstick donut pan, making sure to wipe any excess from sides and hole. You can do this with a spoon OR by pouring the batter into a plastic bag and snipping the tip so that you can pipe the batter. Bake in 350 oven for doubt 10-12 minutes (you can use a cake tester or toothpick to see if they’re done, but don’t overbake!).

7. Once the donuts are slightly cooled, remove from pan and dip in butter followed with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.

Meg grew up in Connecticut and when she wasn’t busy pretending to be a mom, she was in the kitchen learning family recipes. She won over her husband, Alan, whom she met her freshman year at Stanford, with some very fancy homecooked meals. After working in finance and strategy for Gap and NBC-Universal, Meg returned to Stanford where she earned her MBA. Now with three kids of her own (Avery, 5; Brooks, 4 and Ryder 1), Meg’s husband doesn’t see too many of those fancy meals. But her kids eat very well! She believes good food is all it takes to make a friend, and she is grateful for all the friends she has made through her videos.
