I have this recipe from my friend Hazel and they are the best doughnuts. I bake them in mini muffin tins so they are more like doughnut holes. This recipe makes approximately 30 doughnut holes. I just made a double batch, they were gone in days. The only difference in the recipe that I have is that it calls for 1/2 cup shortening. When I made these last week I chopped the apple and partly cooked it before adding it to the dough. Next time I make these I think I'll try adding sour cherries instead of apples. Got to love cherry doughnuts!

These cuties were fairly easy to make! They were made for my little sister as a treat she had asked for a long time. I was lazy and scooped the batter into muffin tins. They did fine baked that way. In place of the cinnamon sugar, I made a quick maple glaze and sprinkled crumbled bacon on top! Needless to say, she loved them :P

Yum! These were tasty little things--light, fluffy. I didn't really taste the apple too much. I made in regular muffin tins, so it felt more like I was eating a muffin; might have to get some doughnut tins! Only sub I made was using cinammon in place of the nutmeg (couldn't find in the spice rack). Oh, and I only used 1/4 c melted butter, dipping only the tops. These were really good! I will make again!

My family loved these. I did not even get to dip in butter and cinnamon sugar. My five year old said these are so yummy. He keep sneaking them. Thanks for the recipe and great compliments I got from my family.

I made this for PAC Spring 08. My family loved these. They were so light and tender. My mandoline turned my apple to applesauce so I ended up chopping it instead. I don't know if it was the apple being chopped vs. grated but I really couldn't taste the it in the first 4 I ate. Maybe if I had let them cool first...I will double the recipe the next time I make this. We only had one left from the four of us eating them. That was the only one that made it to room temperature. Thanks for sharing!
