Applesauce Donuts

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, the 1 tablespoon cinnamon, the salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl whisk together eggs and egg yolk. Add sugar, the 1 cup Homemade Applesauce, the buttermilk, and melted butter; whisk until well mixed. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture. Use your hands to mix together until all of the flour is moistened. Cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out dough to a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut dough with a floured 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter, rerolling dough as necessary. Fry doughnuts, two or three doughnuts and doughnut holes at a time, in deep hot oil (365 degrees F) for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden, turning once. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain.
  3. Dip warm doughnuts and doughnut holes in Applesauce Icing. If desired, serve with whipped cream and/or additional applesauce; sprinkle with additional cinnamon and/or nutmeg. If desired, garnish with apple peel ribbons.

I tried making apple butter doughnuts the other day and they were just toooooooo dense and heavy, which cause undercooking. This recipe is awesome! However I used a 3 1/2 inch ring and that was way too big, but all I have at the moment. I also believe 1/2 inch thick is a little on the too thick side, they do double or triple in thickness. It just makes it a little hard to bite into. I only made the doughnuts, not the other recipes on the page. They came out very cakey and with a nice golden crisp crust. I also added 1 tsp vanilla and the scrapings of one vanilla bean, both of which I added at the end of mixing the egg stuff, before adding it to the flour.
