Baked, mushy and delicious apple cider donuts are made with apple cider reduction to intensify its flavor. Warm and drenched in cinnamon sugar and apple pie spice, this fall treat will become your new favorite too.


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup whole or 2% milk
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1.5 cups of apple cider
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, can also use melted coconut oil

Spicy sugar filling

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cardamom powder


First, pour the cider into a nonstick saucepan and cover over medium heat until reduced to 1/3 cup. It will become a thick syrup. Keep it aside and let it cool.

Then, in a large mixing bowl, add the egg, granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, milk, vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom.

Pour this dry mixture into the wet mixture, along with the reduced apple cider, and mix until combined. Don't mix too much!

Pour batter into greased donut pan, filling halfway through cooking.

Tip: Pour the dough into the pastry bag and the pipe dough into the donut mold. It’s easier and neater.

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let the donuts cool for 5 minutes at room temperature, then remove them from the mold.

While the donuts are cooling, combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom in a large bowl.

Brush each donut with melted butter and roll in the bowl of sugar until completely coated.

Serve immediately. Happy Cooking Time.
