Donuts are my new obsession! I can’t stop thinking about them! When I saw Jocelyn’s Apple Cider Donuts on her blog Inside BruCrew Life, I knew that you guys would love the recipe as much as me, so I asked her if she’d share her recipe and pictures with you! So here it is! Don’t they look delicious?! And guess what? They’re baked!
These donuts are a cake consistency and I topped them with an apple cider glaze.
One word of warning: Make sure you have ALL the ingredients before you start making the donuts. It was late at night and I was in the middle of making them when I discovered that I didn’t have any yogurt. So I made do and substituted apple sauce for it. They still turned out so good. So perfect with a warm cup of java.

TO MAKE THE ICING
