Baked Apple “Donuts”


I really wanted to make something with apples in it this month.  I found this recipe because it did not involve yeast (yes…I said it).  I have not worked much with yeast but I have found a second recipe that I am going to try this month and will post the results….so any way.  I wanted to make a donut but did not want to fry them…so here it goes.

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. shortening
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 1/2 c. finely diced apples


  • Sift first 5 ingredients
  • Add 1/3 cup shortening; mix until mixture is coarse. Set aside.
  • Dry ingredients

  • When donuts are done, dip in butter and then in sugar mixture.

I doubled the recipe from the start – above is the original recipe that yields 12.

I would call these apple muffins rather than donuts but they are delish! 

I just went to the store and bought yeast for the next doughnut recipe…stay tuned!

    Oh yum! Erla, those look delicious! ..and it’s the perfect time of year for apple donuts.

    Remember those parties where we ate donuts off a string? You need to remember all those old party games for Mo.
