ingredients


Doughnuts

3 tablespoons sugar for preparing pans
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup apple butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup apple cider
1/3 cup nonfat plain yogurt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, preferably canola oil

Maple Glaze

1 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup pure maple syrup

directions

In the Vermont countryside, there are two sure signs of spring: frost heaves in the road and smoke rising from the chimneys of the sugarhouses. This recipe was inspired by treats you find while touring this corner of America: cider doughnuts and maple syrup. A mini-Bundt pan produces adorable doughnut-shaped cakes, but if you do not have one, you can use a regular Bundt pan and make a coffee cake; bake it in a 375 degrees F oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

To make Doughnuts: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat molds of a mini-Bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray or oil. Sprinkle with sugar, shaking out excess. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside. In another bowl, whisk together egg, brown sugar, apple butter, maple syrup, cider, yogurt and oil. Add dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Divide half the batter among the prepared molds, spooning about 2 generous tablespoonfuls of batter into each mold. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the tops spring back when touched lightly. Loosen edges and turn the cakes out onto a rack to cool. Clean the mini-Bundt pan, then re-coat it with oil and sugar. Repeat with the remaining batter.

To make maple glaze: In a bowl, combine confectioners sugar and vanilla. Gradually whisk in enough maple syrup to make a coating consistency. Dip the shaped side (underside) of the "doughnuts" in the glaze to coat. Then set them, glazed-side up on a rack over wax paper for a few minutes until the glaze has set.

REVIEW: recipe rating
These were amazing! Moist and soft and just delicious! I used a mini bundt pan and they came out beautifully! The only thing I did was add about a 1/4 tsp. of maple extract to the other glaze ingredients to get a stronger flavor. But without it still YUMMY!!!! Thanks for a great recipe!
