    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    Quick & easy to make. You can have the batter whipped up in the amount of time it takes for the oil to heat. (I use a Fry Daddy.) We actually like them better after they sit for 5-6 hours rather than warm like most doughnuts I make.

      These turned out great for me. Only thing I changed was I used my homemade applebutter instead of applesauce, so I left out the spices. Wonderful. Thanks.

      I used 1 egg, unsweetened homemade applesauce, homemade baking powder, and milk (not buttermilk). I also decided to make baked muffins instead of deep-fried doughnuts. Either the tang of the applesauce came through strongly, or there was an interaction with the baking powder (can happen with homemade). Also, either I mixed the batter too much (and I know not to do that for muffins), or it's a bit dense.

      I made enough changes, what with dropping the eggs and switching the cooking method, that I don't want to rate this recipe. The taste is pretty good (even dense, with a cinnamon streusel topping), but I don't recommend using this as a muffin recipe!
