Baked Apple Cider Donuts


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup GF flour, I use this gluten free blend
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the topping:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray donut pan with nonstick spray or wipe with vegetable oil.
  3. Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg to a large bowl.
  4. Add the egg, almond milk, apple cider, vanilla extract and vegetable oil and mix until lumps disappear and batter is smooth, careful not to overmix.
  5. Fill each spot in the donut pan 3/4 of the way.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes.
  7. While the donuts are in oven, prepare the cinnamon and sugar mixture and set up cooling racks.
  8. When the edges are a light golden brown, pull the donuts from the oven and let sit for 2 minutes.
  9. Remove the donuts from the pan while still warm and dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  10. Set on cooling rack to fully cool.
  11. I keep mine in an airtight container or baggy for up to 3 days. They are perfect with coffee.
