Baked Apple Pie Donuts

As I was perusing Pinterest this morning, I happened upon a recipe for 
gingerbread baked donuts.   I was waiting for everyone else to wake up and 
remembered the kids complaining that we had no food in the house 
(who knows why my grocery bills top $200/week).  
Anyway, I didn't feel like the gingerbread donuts but after a quick search, 
I happened upon this recipe. 

A few things drew me in: I had all of the ingredients (including leftover 'baked apples'), 
prep time was 15 minutes, and I had a donut pan (I'd only used once). 
Not 30 minutes later, I was dipping the donuts in butter, dusting them with 
cinnamon and sugar, and drizzling them with 
this leftover caramel sauce. 

Let's just say that I was a hero this morning. Now I feel better about 
purchasing the donut pan! They taste like an apple fritter 
without the fried taste. 

The great news is that you can easily make these with or without leftover 
apples, with or without  caramel sauce, and you can use a muffin tin if 
you don't have a donut pan!  

They were the perfect breakfast for an impulsive baker like myself!


  1. YUM! They look delicious. No wonder you were a hero to all and sundry.

    And I do have a muffin pan ...

  2. Wow wow they look and from your description, sound great. I haven't seen a donut pan here, but like Shay, I have a muffin pan.
