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.
