I didn't like these either, they were hard and oily. I tried taking them out when lightly browned but they were uncooked inside. I tried different oil temps. With no luck. I also tried a second time, same thing happened. My kids wouldn't even eat them. I ended up liking a baked recipe from they were 5 stars

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and cider. Stir in the melted butter.
  2. Make a well in the flour mixture and stir in the wet ingredients.
  3. Turn the soft dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat it into a 1/2-inch-high-round.
  4. Heat 3 inches of vegetable oil in a deep pot over medium heat.
  5. Use a doughnut cutter to make the donoughts.
  6. Use a spatula to carefully lower a doughnut into the hot oil. You can cook several at once, just don't crowd them.
  7. Once the doughnuts rise to the surface and begin to brown, flip them with the spatula.
  8. Remove after 2 to 3 minutes, or when the doughnuts are golden brown.
  9. Drain on paper towels.
  10. To make the glaze, stir together the confectioners' sugar and the cider (or milk) and spoon the mixture over the doughnuts.
