Hip hip hooray for apple season! My daughter started school this week and we decided to celebrate with some homemade apple cider donut holes. My friend Nicole actually asked me cider donut recipe last year because her kids are addicted to them as mine is. Ive been dragging my feet in coming up something because I really wanted to wait for apple cider season. Now that it is here it is one of the first things I made with my first half gallon of the season! Moist and sugary they are just the perfect fall treat for your family this season.
Apple Cider Donut Holes
adapted from Lara Ferroni
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large egg yolks
1/4 cup apple cider
1/4 cup buttermilk
Vegetable oil for frying
1. In a small bowl whisk the flours, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.
2. Using an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar, then add the egg yolks and mix well until pale and fluffy. Then, add in the vanilla, cider and buttermilk. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients until a sticky dough forms. Then wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
3. Pour 2-inchs of oil in a heavy bottomed pot and heat to 300F on a candy thermometer. Pinch off 2 1/2-inch sized balls and drop in the hot oil, turning them once so each side cooks for about 1-minute. Use a ladle to spoon out the cooked donut holes and place on a plate lined with a plate lined with a paper towel. Let cool slightly then roll in cinnamon sugar, or desired glaze, before eating!
