The crash test dummy No 1 loves cinnamon donuts, I love them too, however I find they are mostly way to heavy, doughy and tend to sit in a lump in my stomach.
These donuts are light and full of apple and cinnamon flavour. Apple and Cinnamon are a paring I love and could eat any time. I do use my own Roasted Apple Sauce for this recipe which I make in batches and bottle.
1/2 cup Apple Sauce
1/4 cup Greek Yoghurt
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
In your mixing bowl place your apple sauce, milk, yoghurt, sugar and melted butter.
Mix together. It won't be smooth if your using a chunky sauce.
Stir through your flour, baking powder and bicarb until just combined.
Pipe into your prepared donut tin. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in a pre heated 180C oven.
In a baking dish place 1 cup caster sugar with 3 tablespoons of cinnamon.
Stir together with a folk or whisk.
Take your donuts out of the oven and while hot
Turn out into the prepared sugar mix. With a couple of skewers or a folk turn them over in the sugar.
You do need to do this while the donuts are hot out of the pan.
