I make this recipe, or at least very similar, mine calls for 1/3 cup white sugar, 1/3 cup shortening, and 3/4 cup apple. This has been a family favorite and a regular go to in winter! I am not reposting with the change in quantities as the recipes are so close. This is a nice cake donut, and I make mine in a mini muffin tin. We all enjoy them alot!

Good recipe. Definitely more of a muffin-type texture than doughnut, but we really enjoyed them. I substituted margarine for shortening. I think it workd well. I would have liked more of an apple flavor to these. I think I will add more apple next time. Kids and DH enjoyed them. I will make these again.
