It is SRC- Secret Recipe Club day, and also officially the first day of autumn, my favorite season… As you can imagine, I am as happy as can be!!! I will be sharing with you a seasonal, guilt-free yet mouthwatering recipe: Apple Cider Baked Donuts with Maple Glaze. I have had these apple cider baked donuts for both breakfast and an afternoon treat… Oh, if you could only see the smile on my face — and my children’s faces as well!!!
The recipe for these apple cider baked donuts has been adapted from Apple Cider and Cinnamon Baked Donuts by We Heart Vegan, the delicious vegan blog that I have been assigned for this month. I confess that vegan cuisine is something that I only came to learn about in culinary school, not something that I live by day to day. But the few vegan dishes that I have tried so far, I liked a lot. How better to learn more about this diet and philosophy on life than with Brittany, author of We Heart Vegan. She has a bachelor of science degree in food and nutrition and a mission to educate others on how “good vegan food can not only be healthy but also cheap and appealing to everyone.” I highly recommend her blog! It was a difficult task for me to choose only one from among so many superb recipes.
Because I did not have coconut flour, egg replacer, and vegan butter in my pantry and fridge, I had to replace them with all-purpose flour, real eggs, and unsalted butter. Instead of tossing these baked donuts in a premixed mixture of cinnamon and sugar as Brittany did, I drizzled them with maple glaze. Of course, you are welcome to try both my apple cider baked donuts with maple glaze or Brittany’s vegan apple cider and cinnamon baked donuts. Although my donuts are not vegan, they are guilt-free (small and baked which means they are both lower in calories and less fattening). I’d love to have your feedback!!
