baked apple donuts

Sorry for lying to you yesterday.
I promised you my donuts recipe from Sunday and it just didn't happen. 
But! Here you go.
Donuts for your Wednesday!!

I woke up this past Sunday morning wanting to bake.
 (Does anyone else get an urge to bake like me?)
But, I didn't feel like leaving the house to pick up ingredients. 
I took a look around our pantry 
and then a look around on my pinterest
and it was quickly decided; 
donuts it would be.  

These were so easy and filled the apartment with the most amazing smell.  
They stayed fresh too for a few days in a Ziploc bag. 
And how cute would these be wrapped in cellophane for a holiday gift?  
Adorbs. 

Baked Apple Donuts
Recipe slightly adapted from Chocolate Shavings 
Makes 24 donut "holes"
Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 C. light brown sugar
  • 1/4 C. white sugar
  • 1 3/4 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 t. pumpkin pie spice (I like touch of ginger flavor here, you could just use nutmeg or cinnamon).
  • 1 medium sized apple, peeled, cored, and finely diced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 C. milk (I used skim)
  • 1/3 C. cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Coating:
  • 1/4 C. butter, melted
  • 1/3 C. white sugar
  • 1 t. cinnamon

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Add the diced butter and, using a pastry blender (or your fingers), mix into the dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 
  4. In a separate smaller bowl, beat the egg.  Add in milk and fold in the diced apple. 
  5. Add egg mixture to flour mixture.  Stir with spatula until just combined.  Do not over-mix. 
  6. Using a cookie dough scoop, place one scoop of batter into each mold of mini muffin pan (make sure you sprayed it with cooking spray back in step 1!).
  7. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes until just golden.  
  8. While donuts bake, melt the butter.  Then in separate bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon. 
  9. Remove from oven, unmold, and brush each donut with melted butter.
  10. Dunk in cinnamon and sugar and shake excess off.
  11. I recommend eating immediately -- they are so good when they're warm!
