Apple Cider donut holes

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 !
