Day 15: Apple Cider Donuts

Original recipe from Vegan Hedonism, modifications from the PPK.

For some reason, I find that making donuts is more fulfilling than making other desserts. To be fair though, I've never made a fancy layer-cake. Oh, I bet making petit fours would be nice too. What was I on about? Sorry, my brain is scrambled from watching the debate and the spin afterward.

These donuts definitely matched my expectations. I prefer cake donuts but these were tasty (y'know, for yeast donuts). I would have preferred for the apple taste to be a little less subtle. If I make these again, I would try adding tiny pieces of apple to the batter.

This is a very simple recipe and could easily be modified to make pretty much any kind of donut. Except cake donuts.

My dad insisted that I post a picture of the mini donut because he made it (and proceeded to get very giggly about it). So, there you go, old man!

Oh wow! Those look soooo good. I can't remember the last time I had a doughnut!
And tell your dad he's silly.
