  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 3 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp yogurt (plain)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp butter, unsalted, melted
  • 2 tbsp apple cider
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease your donut pan.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the apple cider until it begins to simmer.
  • Continue simmering (and stirring) for about 10 minutes, or until liquid has been reduced by about half.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the butter until melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the cider mixture with the sugar, egg, yogurt, and vanilla extract.
  • In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Combine the dry ingredient mixture with the cider/egg/yogurt mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Pipe the batter into the donut cavities evenly. (you can pour batter into a Ziploc bag, cut the corner of the bag off, and pipe the batter in that way)
  • Place donut pan into preheated oven and bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before removing from pan.
  • To prepare topping: combine 2 tbsp of the apple cider reduction with the melted butter and place in container large enough to dip donuts into.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the cinnamon/sugar.
  • To coat donuts, dip one side into the butter mixture and immediately dip into the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • Set onto a cooling rack or serve immediately! Enjoy!
