New Fall Tradition: Apple Cider Donuts

I write about health for a living (come on over and read my Glamour.com health and fitness blog!), so it may come as a surprise that I (secretly) have a mega crush on donuts. No, I don’t indulge often, but when I crave a donut, well, I crave a donut. So when I read a tweet from Kathleen at Bookish Broad about apple cider donuts (follow her on Twitter–she always has lots of great stuff to say), I immediately started salivating. Not only had I never tried an apple cider donut in my life, but I also had no idea what they were. In any case, they sounded divine, so I got cooking.

I used this recipe from Smitten Kitchen, and employed the boys and their cute aprons to help with the dough-mixing and rolling. We fried them up after dinner and voila: apple cider donut bliss!

We’ve all decided to make this a fall tradition. Love.

What are your fall traditions?

    Oh, they sound divine (and look divine too)! I have celiac disease, so I’m going to try making these with almond flour.

    They look so yummy! But how was the grease factor? I tried to make donuts at home once, too, but the smell of grease lingered in my kitchen for days and days (and the walls and ceiling were terribly greasy). I LOVE donuts, though, and want to make them again. Did you have this problem, or was it just me?

    i want one right now.

    fall makes me think of starting crock pot beef stews with mixed veggies and having leftoevers for 2 days so i don’t have to cook again.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Smitten Kitchen is such a wonderful site– I use her recipes often. These donuts look delicious. I am very impressed! So, I have this idea that donuts are the next big thing. Cupcakes are all trendy and gourmet-y now, but I’m convinced that donuts are next!
