Apple Cider Doughnuts

Baked Apple Cider Donuts

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 and 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 egg
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup apple, finely chopped (I used JonaMac)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup apple cider
1/3 cup plain yogurt
3 tbsp vegetable oil
cinnamon and sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease two donut pans and set aside. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside. Chop apple into small pieces or use food processor to puree and set aside. In a large bowl combine egg, brown sugar, apple, maple syrup, apple cider, yogurt, and oil. Mix until well blended. In small amounts add in flour mixture and beat until just moistened. Spoon dough into donut pan, be careful not to overfill pans. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.

While donuts are baking, prepare a shallow bowl with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Once donuts have finished baking, immediately place donut in cinnamon sugar bowl and spoon mixture over donut until it is completely coated. Repeat with remaining donuts and serve warm. Preferably with a cup of hot apple cider!
