Apple and Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

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

Apple Sauce.

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.

These should be served hot with a coffee.  Enjoy!
