Applesauce Donuts

Fall Recipe

Now that kids are officially back in school, the mornings are turning cooler and the leaves are getting a bit more colourful - we thought you'd like a nice little treat to go with the season. I found these Applesauce Donuts and thought they are the perfect after school snack on a pretty fall day. They are pretty easy to make and the little ones can help with the mixing (let mom or dad handle the hot oil though). Enjoy!

What you need:

Oil for frying
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulates sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons oil
1/4 cup milk
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Cinnamon sugar for coating

How To Make Them:
Fill a large heavy saucepan with 3 inches of oil. Heat to 360°F. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt in a small bowl. In a large bowl, beat sugars and eggs until fluffy. Beat in 2 Tablespoons oil. Stir in half of the flour mixture, beating until just incorporated. Stir in milk. Add the remaining flour mixture. Stir in applesauce and vanilla; mix until well-combined. Carefully drop batter by the Tablespoon into the hot oil, 3 or 4 at a time. Fry for about 3 minutes, turning once with tongs half-way through. Remove to a paper towel to drain and cool. Toss with cinnamon sugar.
