Cider Donuts

I went to college in Amherst, MA, and nearby there was the best farm store with the most amazing cider donuts (they're such favorites of anyone who tries them, Kringle Candle has added it to its line of scents). When fall comes, I start to crave cider donuts, since I'm a couple hours from my favorites, I decided to make my own version. Not quite the same, but they definitely fill that void.

This recipe is the perfect amount for my donut pan, but this would also work just fine as muffins (or mini muffins).

Cider Donuts
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons apple butter
1/4 cup apple cider
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sugar Coating:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and grease your

In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, set aside. In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients until smooth. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture, stir until just combined. Let batter rest for about 5 minutes before filling the pan.

After resting, pour donut batter into the prepared pan. Bake donuts for 10 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through to ensure even baking. Allow donuts to cool for a couple of minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack.

For the sugar coating, mix together remaining sugar and cinnamon and pour onto a plate. Brush a donut lightly with the melted butter and then dip it into the cinnamon sugar, turning it over and rolling it to get a good coating of sugar.
