Apple Cider donut holes
Do you know sep 26 was Johnny Appleseed birthday ?
September is a month of birthdays in our extended family.So really I would have missed Johnny Appleseed birthday very easily, had it not been for all the apple learning and tasting that was going on at our school that week . My daughter’s class made apple pancake, learnt about making apple juice and apple sauce , not to mention apple art !
I came across apple cider donuts holes , blame it on all the talk of Facebook town 🙂 I drooled looking at the images of the darling donut holes, my friend Melissa made.So it was time for us to whip us some of our own .
I followed the recipe here with minor adjustments.I used whole wheat pastry flour.Also,I used evaporated cane juice sugar instead of brown sugar and i left apple butter, i was out of it..
This is what i would say about my donut holes with adjustments.
- It is wheat-y,subtle 🙂
- Not as fluffy as the AP flour would have been as expected,i assume..Regardless, we didn’t mind it at all !
- Mine were not well rounded spheres,it looked muffin shape.
- I ended up using much more butter and sugar to coat the donut holes then the originally recipe calls for.I did it incrementally.Not sure,if i missed something.
Since,It was devoured by our kids and adults alike,in less then 24 hr, so I would say it’s a keeper for us !
