So delicious! I took the preview reviewer's comments, and used 2 apples, chopped into chunks, which I added to the dough after the dough cycle. They're hard to keep in the dough, so I ended up poking them in, which worked quite well. Done this way, these little gems yielded chunks of warm, soft apples, surrounded by a slightly dense dough, swaddled in melted butter and cinnamon-sugar. Great way to get my apple doughnut fix without being deep fried! Thanks for posting, Chocolatl - I've had my eye on this recipe for a while! Recipenapped for Veggie Swap 22.

Yummy! We really enjoyed these doughnuts warm, right out of the oven. We didn't really think that the texture was doughnut-like, but more between a bagel and a doughnut. It didn't matter though, we loved them anyway. I went on the suggestion of the previous reviewers and added some additional apple. I used the large grated apple in the dough as written, but after the dough cycle was complete, I kneaded in one apple cut into chucks. Because the extra apple added more moisture to the dough, I also had to knead in some additional flour. We wanted warm doughnuts for breakfast, so I put the dough in a greased gallon Ziploc bag and put it in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, I set the bag on the counter for several hours to let it warm up and rise. I rolled out the dough and cut with a doughnut cutter. I got 16 large doughnuts and some doughnut holes, too. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
